African Heritage Festival on August 23

Make sure your lawn chair is in the car when you leave the driveway and head for the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage on Saturday, August 23. The center is this year's location for the one day African Heritage Festival being held from 11:00am until 7:00pm. The festival was organized to celebrate the unity, art, and history of the African Diaspora's people and the African, African-American and Caribbean cultures.

Sports Competitions, Activities and Entertainment

The day is filled with activities that include a soccer tournament, volleyball clinic and basketball games. The long list of entertainment options during this free event includes musicians, singers, a comedian rapper, a skit, dancers, and poets. The entertainment schedule runs throughout the day. The stage, basketball court and soccer field will all be terrific places to set up your lawn chair and spend the afternoon.

African Heritage Festival

Fashion and cultural demonstrations will have a presence at the festival. Pull up your lawn chair and learn to tie a head wrap. The head wrap is a modern day solution to a bad hair day with a long history, so bring along your favorite scarf. Food is a highlight of any festival, and the African Heritage Festival will be no exception. Special events for the kids and healthy living education round out the day's activities options.

Bridge Kids Bridging Gaps

The event is organized in part by Bridge Kids International. This global non-profit is focused on helping teenagers and young adults of Africa and the African Diaspora become enlightened and effective at solving community issues ranging from economic development to education to health challenges. Bridge Kids links their members around the world for the cooperation and empowerment necessary to achieve their end goals.
