Pan African City Alive! was opened in September 1993 in Palo Alto, California by Peter and Keisha Evans, as an Afrocentric shop to provide for the Afrocentric needs of folks in the San Francisco Bay area.
A move to Sunnyvale, CA in 2007 has allowed the mission of Pan African City Alive to be expanded to become a destination for a community of like-minded people. Pan African City Alive has been and is now a place where people come and leave fulfilled. Clients/visitors usually have purchased what they came for, were treated well, enjoyed the conversation, learned something new, etc.
WEEKLY MUSIC FOR ALL TO ENJOY!
Every Saturday from 10:30 to 1:30 live music is here. African drums, guitars, bass, sax and a variety of instruments come to join in at no charge. All are welcome to play a drum, sing along, dance or just enjoy the spirit of the carmaraderie.
PACA is a destination where you can find authentic and affordable items from Africa or the Diaspora – hence the name PAN African. Finally, everyone should know that we're more than a store. We're also a source for researching the rich history unique to African people.
