The Annual Black Heritage Festival kicks off its 27th year on Friday, March 7 -March 8, 2014 in Lake Charles, LA. The mission of the Black Heritage Festival of Louisiana (BHF) is to develop, expose and educate audiences to the arts and culture of African-Americans. We are a non-profit organization that is able to reach our mission because of the continued support we receive from community partners like you. BHF has a very loyal following that includes both families and young singles. 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 100+ 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 open with an array of art, books, jewelry, African artifacts, clothing, collectables, Greek paraphernalia and lots, lots more. In addition to great food, music and fun the festival provides educational opportunities through workshops and seminars.
