Black Arts Fest MKE 2300

Black Arts Fest MKE 2023

Black Arts Fest MKE exists to celebrate the deep roots of African Heritage and the creativity of Black Cultural Arts. This dynamic ethnic festival occurs each year, on the first Saturday of August, on the Summerfest grounds. Black Arts Fest MKE is packed with fun-filled festivities with exciting programming featuring Art, Education, Music, Entertainment, Poetry, Dance, Fashion, Literature, Heritage, Health, Wellness, Community, Cuisine, Vendor Markets and more. The festival strives to educate all and strengthen pride in African ancestry.

We are excited to bring our community together again on the Summerfest grounds with a dynamic day-party lineup, featuring Milwaukee’s best hometown talent including the popular Divine 9 Party celebrating all 9 historically black sororities and fraternities.

There will be exciting activities all day, starting at 12 Noon when the festival gate opens! Don’t miss the opening ceremony at 12:30pm. It’s a whole vibe!!  Stay tuned for more information on the final scheduled lineup.

Come on out! Bring the kids, your peers, and the elders to this multi-generational experience.



The event is finished.
