Essence Festival

Weekend 1: June 25-17
Weekend 2: July 2-4

Essence Festival is known as "the party with a purpose!" This annual music festival started in 1995 as a one-time event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Essence Magazine. Now, it is the largest event celebrating African-American culture and music in the United States! Locally, we refer to it as Essence Fest and it returns virtually this summer, streaming on www.essencestudios.com!

Essence Fest

Not only is it a weekend full of music, but there are also a range of activities across Music, Film & TV and Food & Wine, as well as interviews, conferences and exhibitions!
