Add a Comment by Alexis

The Black Music Month Festival will be in Downtown Vancouver over three days this summer. This celebration focuses on honouring African Americans and African Canadians who have made significant contributions to music in many genres. The festival will not only feature music but also include workshops in African drumming and Kemetic yoga, and a BIPOC community business pop up market.
