Feel the Heritage Festival

Arlington's 30th annual Feel the Heritage Festival will be held on Sat., Feb. 24, 2024 from noon-5 p.m. at Charles Drew Community Center. The festival welcomes hundreds each year to learn about the Arlington’s historically African-American neighborhoods while enjoying live entertainment, delicious food and dozens of vendors. Let us know you're coming!

Call for local artists! The festival will celebrate this year's theme for National Black History Month as determined by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH): "African Americans and the Arts". We hope to digitally display the work of artists from across our region. Submit your art for consideration here!

Confirmation will be shared in a follow-up email by the Department of Parks and Recreation Event Coordinator, Emilee Riches (eriches@arlingtonva.us).

Please keep in mind that all art is subject to acceptance by DPR staff based on adherence to the theme and appropriate subject matter.
