13th Annual African American Community Heritage Festival - Feb 25th

Hello Austin

State Representative Dawnna Dukes and Pro Arts Collective invites you to attend the 13th Annual African American Community Heritage Festival, on Saturday, February 25th, 2012. Last year's festivities were highly successful with over 60 vendors, nearly 3,000 in attendance and fundraising efforts that granted $5,000.00 to the Huston-Tillotson University Scholarship Fund!

We extend special thanks to our generous sponsors, hard-working volunteers and service providers, without whom this wonderful event could not have been possible in 2011.

The 13th Annual Festival, scheduled on Saturday, February 25th, will again be held on the beautiful grounds of Huston Tillotson University, from 1:00PM to 5:00PM. Huston-Tillotson is located at 900 East Chicon Street in Austin, Texas. With a purposeful objective to raise scholarship funds for Huston-Tillotson University, Austin’s prime long-standing institute of higher learning, this event is a family-friendly extravaganza filled with games and vendors; providing a Kid’s Zone with bounce houses, safety demonstrations, arts & crafts, home d├ęcor, books, clothing, jewelry, storytelling, health, vision and dental screenings and insurance outreach coupled with dance, giveaway prizes and a live entertainment mix to satisfy varying musical tastes.

We are expecting another day filled with food, fun and excitement in 2012.

We welcome you to join us.
