Cake Art Affair is back for its 6th edition with a focus on mental health

Cake Art Affair is a youthful artsy event that combines the best cakes with the best live music from fast-rising Kenyan acts with groundbreaking stage performances.

Music sensations Bensoul, Serro, Mbithi, Yozowo Band, and Willie Oeba, are slated to give thrilling live band performances at the event set for April 14th, 2019 at its new home, Two Rivers grounds from 11 am to 8 pm.

Returning for its sixth time, the event dubbed the Ray of Sunshine Edition will use its voice and all their resources to raise awareness on issues around depression among the youth. This will be done through sparking conversations both online and offline, before, during and after the event. Attendees will be encouraged to don bold colors as part of their outfits for the day in support of the theme.

In line with its mission to elevate young entrepreneurs, Cake Art Affair will engage over 30 home bakers, giving them a showcase and marketing opportunity during the event. Cake lovers and art enthusiasts will once again be treated to exciting music performances, art displays and a day long of free cake samples.

The event will also host an Arts Market where Crafts and Visual Arts vendors will display and sell their wares. The alcohol-free event will serve as the perfect place to meet a baker for your next occasion, a converging point for Kenyan youth to discover Kenya’s next biggest stars on the live music front, as well as support and be inspired by their peers’ business ventures.

Speaking ahead of the event, the event’s Director and Co-Founder Simon Maina says, “Through Cake Art Affair we hope to nurture a culture among the youth, of consuming and supporting their own musicians and enterprises. Our music and products are amazing and we shouldn’t wait for external affirmation; we just need to start consuming it now.”

Cake Art Affair’s Bakers Coordinator Lynnet Kamau adds, “This year’s edition will be small heaven for all sugar lovers. We’ve booked 34 Bakers so far, the highest we’ve ever recorded. This translates to over 100 different cake flavors for your enjoyment, the whole day!”

Since its inception in 2015, Cake Art Affair has gravitated towards being the premier youth event in Kenya. To date, over 75 home-bakers, 40 bands/musicians, and 5000+ attendees have been part of creating memorable moments in different editions of the event.
