Nashville's Annual African Street festival will be held at Hadley Park State Hosted by the African American Cultural Alliance (AACA), this phenomenal, family-oriented festival has grown continuously and now attracts thousands who are interested in African and African American culture.

The festival has garnered local media attention and remains one of the city's premiere events attracting people of all ages, from all walks of life and from all sectors of the region. And our celebration is now also expanding to include the cultures of the Caribbean, North, Central and South America and other places around the world where Africa is also represented in its people and cultures.

The African Street Festival event can also give companies and other organizations a unique opportunity to support one of the largest festivals of this type in the Southeast. Please contact us about becoming a sponsor or visit our profile at GivingMatters.com to learn more about us.

Some of what's included each year at our festival is:

The Children's Pavilion (featuring arts and crafts, drumming, dance, storytelling and more Authentic African, American and other cuisines representing the Diaspora

An eclectic mix of live music, such as African, Reggae, Latin, R&B, Jazz, Gospel, Neo-Soul, Country, Blues, African Drumming & More
Spoken Word
Dance
The New African Pavilion
Opening Night International Music Block Party

The AACA was founded in May of 1983 by several concerned African American community members in Nashville who wanted to promote the positive aspects of African culture. The primary concern of the African American Cultural Alliance is to enhance the awareness of the cultural and historical background of people of African descent, while providing various outlets in which we ourselves can take part in demonstrating our culture to others.

As our contribution to the cultures of the African Diaspora, the members of the AACA strive to:

1. Promote positive values in culture and education of the African Diaspora;

2. Promote dignity and creativity in the world affairs of the African Diaspora; and

3. Develop and sustain a vehicle for cultures of the African Diaspora and others to develop the abilities of its people to advance their holistic well-being through positive motivation and intercultural relationships. Through theatrics, music, history, poetry, and dance, we strive to educate our communities about the heritage of the people of Africa and the Diaspora, while building bridges that connect the large spectrum of our various cultures.

The African Cultural Alliance embraces the definition of culture as all material and immaterial things that a people manifests in order to survive, adapt, control and flourish in their environment.
