Fredericksburg Area Black Arts Festival: Revisited

The Fredericksburg Area Museum (FAM) is excited to announce the Fredericksburg Area Black Arts Festival- Revisited on June 10, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Presented in conjunction with Seen: Viewing the Work of African American Artists of Fredericksburg (currently on display at the Fredericksburg Area Museum), this festival gives recognition to the rich history of the Harambee 360 Degrees Interpretive Theater, which was established in Fredericksburg in the 1970’s, and became the podium for Black artists to find support and exposure. The founder of Harambee 360, Clarence Todd, established the first Fredericksburg Black Arts Festival in the mid -1970s.


Artists that participate in this festival will be shown at Libertytown Arts Workshop and the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts during the month of October 2023. These exhibits are generously sponsored by Libertytown Arts Workshop.


The museum is currently looking for artists and performers to participate in this festival. Black artists and performers working in Spotsylvania County, Stafford County, Caroline County, King George County and the city of Fredericksburg are encouraged to apply.
