2019 District Cultural Arts Festival

  • Huston-Tillotson University 900 Chicon Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

Presented by Six Square: Austin’s Black Cultural District, the District Cultural Arts Fest is a celebration that honors the rich legacy and cultural contributions of Central Texas’ Black community.

A yearly festival in East Austin, our goals are to explore and highlight the multi-faceted talents of Black creatives and reclaim space for community in Austin’s historically Black neighborhoods.

During the day, we’ll have a craft and food vendor market featuring local Black-owned businesses as well as four activations that showcase a variety of Black cultural expressions:

- Libations

- Oral Storytelling presented by the Austin History Center

- TV/Film Production

- Public Art Installation

In the evening we’ll kick off our music festival featuring Grammy-nominated Maimouna Youssef (aka Mumu Fresh), Mobley, CJ Edwards & the Funk Fellowship, and Underground Temple.

On August 31, 2019, join us as we continue creating a nexus of thriving Black arts and culture in East Austin.

This is a family-friendly event. All are welcomed!
