Everfest's Take

From the Organizer

Join the African American Dance Ensemble on January 1, 2024, for our 38th annual Kwanzaa celebration. Observing the principle Imani, which means Faith. To believe with all our hearts in our people and the righteousness and victory of our struggle. Kwanzaa is a time to honor African American culture and values, including unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. It’s also a time for reflection and celebration, with communal feasts and gatherings that bring together family and friends. The doors will open to the public at noon and the performances will begin at 2:00 pm at the historic Durham Armory. Kwanzaa Fest is Free and open to the public. Kwanzaa appeals to a diverse audience, as AADE seeks to preserve and promote the fine traditions of African and African American dance and music to the broad community. In honor of Baba Chuck Davis donated canned foods and toiletry items will be donated to the Urban Ministries of Durham. For more information, contact us at
