The African-American Cultural Festival in Raleigh, N.C. is a two-day celebration of African-American music, art, food and culture. Highlights include musical performances, an arts and crafts market and a family-friendly village featuring educational programming for school-aged children.

The African-American Cultural Festival Main Stage will be located in City Plaza in Raleigh and spread out through Charter Square and along the 400 block of Fayetteville Street. Local, regional and nationally recognized acts will perform both days and encompass both traditional and contemporary African-American music and dance.
