BLACK 2 ACTION (Not in Vain)

Each year, the City of San Diego is invited to embrace and celebrate San Diego’s diverse and provocative Black heritage and culture at the Kuumba Festival which is celebrated the last week of February.  Kuumba Festival celebrates the positive lifestyle changes made over the year, provides cultural resources in the African Market Place, positive powerful healing images and spiritual celebrations for the entire family.

Tickets are "Pay What You Can" at the price that feels right for you. The suggested price is $15 per day. If you plan on enjoying most of the festival’s offerings and you can afford to pay more, we greatly appreciate it. Your purchase directly supports the artists that make Kuumba Fest possible.
