Description of Event:

Come celebrate it at Portsmouth's 25th Annual African-American Culture and Heritage Festival promoting Cultural Diversity and Unity. Festival visitors are introduced to Africa through sights, sounds and smells. Ethnic foods such as jambalaya and larderbout, and a marketplace of sculptures, paintings, prints, baskets, quilts and other assorted hand-crafted wares contribute to the ambiance of the Festival. Entertainment is a unique combination of contemporary and ancient art forms. Nationally acclaimed musical guests perform jazz, reggae, gospel, rhythm and blues. Children's activities are a specialty at the festival. Storytelling, games and crafts with origins in several African countries are all participatory. Hours: Fri 5pm-10pm, Sat 12pm-10pm, Sun 12pm-7pm
