Legacy Day – a festival that celebrates the rich cultural heritage of African Americans in Kent County – has occurred each August for the past several years. It’s an opportunity for all to have a great time recognizing their shared history.

Each year, a Legacy Day theme is selected and builds a full day of experiences around the chosen theme. In addition to exhibits and an honoree ceremony, everyone enjoys a parade, special art exhibits, an outdoor dance party along with a variety of vendors offering food, beverages and crafts!

The 2022 Legacy Day theme will be celebrating Kent County’s Veterans. Friday: Honoree Reception; Saturday: Genealogy workshop, concert, Outdoor Dance Party with a live DJ.
