African American Heritage Festival

Join us to celebrate over 250 years of Charlotte’s vibrant African American history and culture. Explore the African roots of Southern foods; tour the 1774 Alexander homesite through the eyes of Bet, one of the enslaved people who lived and worked on the property; listen to African and African American music; and more. Spend the day exploring arts, music, dance, fashion, storytelling, and learn about everyday people who have accomplished extraordinary things.

Special thanks to Walmart, Wells Fargo, the Arts & Science Council, and Watch Charlotte for helping to keep this festival FREE for our community members.
