Festival 2016 is poised to present a visual feast of color, movement and pageantry. Join us as we Rock Steady to the sounds from the African diaspora on two dynamic stages. Come see the community Rock Steady in the Boogaloo Celebration Parade, visit the Opalanga D Pugh Children’s Pavilion for Art and Learning, stroll the “Watu Sokoni”( People’s Marketplace), and witness the Drum and Drill Team Exhibition, Vintage Car Show and Art Garden. Returning this year is the scavenger hunt to engage you in a fun cultural and educational adventure and don’t miss Friday’s Youth Festival as we Rock Steady like teenagers in the streets in our version of a Soul Train line with one of Denver’s hottest disc jockeys
The Colorado Black Arts Festival is excited to present the best of visual and performing arts to celebrate its 29th Annual Festival July 8-10, 2016 in historic Denver City Park West. This year’s Festival theme “Rock Steady” conveys the ability to excel in the arts with a rocking and soulful dimension. It represents a soulful genre that captures artistic rhythms with origins in the African diaspora. Origins 2016!
