The Black Heritage Festival is coming to the Lake Charles Civic Center this weekend. Three days of great entertainment, food and of course, great music. Entertaining at the festival will be comedian/magician Dewayne Hill, musician Leon Chavis and Frankie Beverly and Maze.

In fact, you'll find great events for the whole family.

Frankie Beverly and Maze had their first hit on the R&B Charts back in 1977 and they've been entertaining crowds ever since. Their songs "Back in Stride" in 1985 and "Can't Get Over You" in 1988, went to the top of the R&B Hot 100. The band tours frequently around the U.S. and Europe. Of course, you might get hungry between the entertainment acts.

If you’re hungry for mouthwatering food, terrific music and great family fun then this is the place for you. Entertainers perform gospel, zydeco, blues, spoken word and more on the Kids and Main Stages. There are approximately 70 vendors displaying and selling a wide variety of goods and services. Food booths will serve plenty of great tasting Louisiana Creole and Traditional African-American foods, including gumbo, jambalaya and Barbeque. The vendor marketplace will be open with an array of art, books, jewelry, African artifacts, clothing, collectables, Greek paraphernalia and lots, lots more.
