The “Feel the Heritage Festival” is scheduled to take place at the Drew Community Center (3500 23rd Street South) next Saturday, Feb. 25, from 1-6 p.m. This is the event’s 25th year running.
As in previous years, attendees will be able to experience Arlington’s African-American roots through food, art, and entertainment. The event will also have free activities for kids and a “Hall of History” with photos and artifacts from Arlington churches and organizations.
Food vendors slated to sling food during the festival include the A.R. Seafood and Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company. Additionally, the festival will have more than 20 artisans selling handmade and local goods and booths from community exhibitors such as BikeArlington and the Nauck Civic Association.
The festival is free to attend and parking will be “ample,” according to Arlington County.
