The Tampa Bay Black Heritage Festival (TBBHF) is a 10-day celebration of cultural events that feature national and local speakers, musicians, artists, poets and craftspeople. Events begin the week before the national holiday remembering the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and extend to the weekend after. TBBHF is the largest African-American event in the bay area and has been selected as one of the Top 20 Events by the Southeast Tourism Society six times, including 2011 and 2012. The Festival celebrates the ambiance of the African-American spirit, history and culture. Our Signature Heritage Events provide educational, cultural and fun activities inclusive of the entire community, and bring awareness to the contributions of African-Americans and others in the vast African Diaspora. Speeches, seminars, workshops, visual and performing artists, wellness and health awareness highlight the Festival, which includes educational activities for children and adults, as well as African-inspired goods and wares, and delicious ethnic cuisine that adds to the excitement.
