TUSCUMBIA-Join us on May 31st and June 1st for the African Heritage Festival at the Willie Green Recreation Center in Tuscumbia, Alabama. This annual event, hosted by the North Alabama African Heritage Association, celebrates the rich traditions and vibrant cultures of Africa. This year, we’re expecting our biggest crowd yet, with a lineup of activities that cater to all ages.

The highlight of the weekend is the fashion show on Saturday, showcasing the evolution and diversity of African fashion. From traditional attire to contemporary designs, this show promises a visual feast and celebration of African culture.

The festival’s music scene is equally compelling, featuring a mix of gospel, reggae, blues, and R&B. We’re excited to announce that The Midnighters will be performing, bringing their beloved sound to our diverse musical lineup. Their performances, along with other talented artists, guarantees a memorable experience for music lovers.

Beyond the stage, the festival grounds will be filled with vendors offering a selection of African crafts, books, and more. Food stands will provide a taste of Africa, with dishes that promise to delight your palate. This year, we’re also incorporating programming from local non-profits, adding an educational layer to the festival.

Admission to the festivals is free, making it a perfect opportunity for families and individuals to explore and celebrate African culture together.
