The Black Heritage Fest is back and better than ever!
Black Heritage Fest founder Richard Andrews is excited to continue with the mission to produce a quality recreational, cultural, educational, family-oriented celebration.
The two day-long festival, which draw thousands each year, will be held on October 8-9, 2022, from 4-10 p.m. every day at Emancipation Park, located at 3018 Emancipation Ave. in Houston’s historic Third Ward community.
People from all over the Greater Houston area will have the opportunity to experience business, networking, and cultural programming throughout the weekend that highlights and celebrate Houston’s vibrant African American community and Black culture.
