Heritage Fest 2022: Save the date for third annual free event at the Arsht

If you’re looking ahead to 2022 – and saving the dates for all the events you’d like to attend – here’s an early heads-up for an important one.

The Third Annual Heritage Fest, celebrating artists representing the African Diaspora, has been scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 5, 2022, at the Arsht Center’s Thomson Plaza for the Arts. 

Starting at 3 p.m., the free event promises an afternoon of fun-filled activities for all, including live performances and food vendors.

Heritage Fest will also feature a community discussion. At 5 p.m., the Peacock Foundation Studio presents “The Heritage Project: Race, Intimacy and Expression in Dance,” which will cover social injustice issues and how they have influenced the identities of Black dancers and choreographers who are part of the LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and/or questioning, asexual and/or ally) community.
