African-American Cultural Festival, produced by the Columbus Recreation &
Parks Department with support from the Department of Neighborhoods,
celebrates freedom and equal rights through opportunities to experience the
rich history of the African-American culture. The event will showcase
local talent while honoring history and community through live music, spoken
word and dance performances in Columbus’ historic King-Lincoln District.
Activities for the entire family include KidsZone fun, community and
wellness resources, food vendors and an educational walk along the Long St.
Cultural Wall—a landmark exploring the history of the Near East Side of
Columbus, recognizing individuals who have helped make the neighborhood what it
is today. This family-filled day of fellowship, food and fun is open to
all with free admission.
