The African American Foundation of Prince William County is proud to present a family friendly celebration of African American arts and culture at Metz Middle School.
For the past 26 years, the first Saturday in August has marked the African American Culture Arts Festival in Prince William County.
Over the years the festival has grown to include more than 125 exhibitors, including arts and crafts dealers, retailers of African Wares, youth groups, colleges and school exhibits, Health Fair, Business and Job Expos, Classic Car Show and great food vendors.
Admission to the Festival is FREE.
Thanks to donations from local churches, all children's games at the Festival will be FREE.
Want to be a volunteer? The Festival needs you!
