Join Us on January 1, 2019, at the Historic Durham Armory (212 Foster Street), in Downtown Durham, North Carolina. Bring the entire family for a day of Unity, Culture and Community Development. The doors will open at 12 noon, Children’s Village at 12:30 and the performances at 2:00pm.

Kwanzaa is a celebration for ALL people, focusing on family, friends, and the fruits of the earth. Celebrating the holiday season and Durham’s diversity, AADE’s annual Kwanzaa celebration is a time to enjoy family, community, and culture. Kwanzaa itself is a seven-day African holiday that celebrates a different principle each day. AADE’s Kwanzaa takes place on the seventh day, which is dedicated to Imani, or faith.

Kwanzaa Fest is FREE and open to the Public!!! Come enjoy games, arts & crafts, a drumming class, and Durham’s Fire Department at our Children’s Village.
