The SUMMIT: The RCC biennially holds a summit to deliberate on the organization’s work and to devise strategies to achieve its objectives. The first two days will be for the conference of representatives. Topical in the deliberations will be strategies towards replicating the KASI model in Rastafari communities continent-wide.
AARG TRADE EXPO: Since 2017, the summit is held along with the All Africa Rastafari Gathering (AARG) which is a trade expo among Rastafari and the Pan-African community. Inaugurated in 2017 and adopted by the RCC in 2019, the trade expo is geared towards improving intra-African trade.

Artists from across the continent will share the stage with their Ghanaian counterparts. The music event is sponsored by African Star Sound Systems. The night will also feature drumming and chanting by the various Rastafari mansions in the Council.
The summit and trade expo is attended by representatives from member countries, as well as Rastafari from around the globe.
