The 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.
