BLACK ARTS FESTIVAL
JULY 10-12, 2020
The Black Arts & Cultural Center is moving the festival to a virtual experience so that the staff and community are safe. We will offer a virtual experience to shop vendors, engage in the arts, enjoy entertainment and connect with the community.
ABOUT US: Black Arts Festical (BAF) is a public arts and cultural festival founded and run by the Black Arts & Cultural Center of Kalamazoo. Since 1986, the festival has hosted artists from across the globe and brought hundreds of businesses to the downtown area — creating a cultural destination in our community.
Throughout the festival, BAF showcased the artists’ talents alongside musicians, local artists and many other community organizations.
BAF is made possible by the support of it’s planning team members, partners, sponsors, board members, volunteers and community.
