The Black Arts and Cultural Festival is an updated take on a classic celebration of the traditions and cultural contributions of the black community through music, art, dance, and more.

In addition to an exciting lineup of talent on the main stage, the festival will feature a gospel stage, Her Temple Monologues Teen Scene, food vendors, crafts, arts, heritage, and a featured performance by R&B superstar Faith Evans. Evans is a multi-platinum, seven-time Grammy nominee, and 1998 Grammy winner for Best Performance by a Duo or Group for “I'll be Missing You,” an homage to her late husband and hip-hop legend Notorious B.I.G.

As part of Albany's Black Arts and Cultural Festival, Albany Center Gallery will showcase the work of local and regional artists from within a 100-mile radius of Albany on Saturday, August 4 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
