Bimbé Cultural Arts Festival

When: Sat., May 19, 12 p.m. 2018

For nearly fifty years, Durham's annual Bimbé Cultural Arts Festival has celebrated the legacies and contributions of African Americans to the vibrant fabric of the city. From jazz, blues, and dance to Black Wall Street, there's plenty to celebrate. But as the city has grown and its priorities have shifted, Bimbé has been shuffled northward, out of the city center and into Rock Quarry Park near the Durham County Stadium. This year, nineties R&B trio SWV heads up the musical offerings, while the rest of the festival has plenty of family-friendly games and activities as well as food and informational booths. If one day of fun isn't enough, you can pregame with the free Basketball Classic at Southern High School on Thursday night, and teenagers with a valid high school ID can enjoy a free pool party at the Campus Hills pool on Alston Avenue Friday night. —Allison Hussey
