Founded in 2018, Black Arts Fest MKE has been a welcome addition to the city’s busy summer festival season. Following two pandemic-related years away, the event will return to Henry Maier Festival Park on Saturday, August 6. Wellness, community, and heritage are just a few of the areas the fest focuses on. Like many other festivals, Black Arts Fest MKE also emphasizes music, art (it’s in the name, after all!), and other forms of entertainment. And there’s a lot of fun in store at this year’s installment.

As you gear up for Saturday’s festival (and while you prepare to purchase tickets), you can check out the Black Arts Fest MKE entertainment lineup below. You can also find the lineup on Black Arts Fest MKE’s website.
