Looking to enjoy fall weather while immersing in black culture and heritage? Then mark the calendar for the Houston Black Heritage Music & Arts Festival on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from noon to 9 p.m. at Midtown Park, located at 2811 Travis Street in Houston. The Houston Black Heritage Music & Arts Festival (HBHMAF) was founded by The Foundation for Black Heritage and Culture and is held annually.

There’s no charge for admission, and this year’s festival will take advantage of the fall weather for the first time in its history, with a youth zone, family activities all day and live music beginning at 4 p.m. The theme is Tribute to New Orleans!

Partial proceeds received by The Foundation for Black Heritage and Culture on behalf of the Houston Black Heritage Festival are donated to a Historically Black College & University (HBCU). In addition to the festival, the foundation has a huge community presence, including donation drives, tributes to local leaders, and recognizing Houston’s unsung heroes. This organization works to elevate black culture and heritage through music and arts, as well as to promote the growth of visual art, drama, entertainment, literature, and dance through community. If you can’t make the festival on November 16, keep up with events on their website and social media.
