The Kunta Kinte Heritage Festival is a free, family-oriented cultural celebration for all to enjoy live music and dance performances, world foods and artisan vendors, as well as heritage and history of the African Diaspora.

The festival commemorates Kunta Kinte’s arrival in Annapolis in 1767 and observes his struggle to preserve his cultural heritage.
