Don't miss the 22nd Annual Cary Kwanzaa Celebration! Cary Kwanzaa is a communal, cultural celebration that honors African-American people and their heritage. The theme for this year’s celebration is "It's a New Dawn; It's a New Day" and will feature a performance by the children's dance group, Kuumba Dance Company, at 1 p.m. The event will also include a Vendor Market and Children's Village (hands-on arts & crafts activities) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Kwanzaa Ceremony will begin at 3 p.m. and feature a performance by the Elegba Folklore Society.

Kwanzaa is a celebration for all people, focusing on family, friends and the fruits of the earth. During Kwanzaa, people are invited to ponder the Nguzo Saba, seven powerful principles derived from African heritage, as a means of taking stock, celebrating achievements and entering the future refreshed and renewed.

The Cary Kwanzaa Celebration is produced by the Town of Cary in partnership with the Ujima Group.
