The Little Block Party at the August ArtWalk celebrates African-descendant traditions, practices, and cross-cultural exchange.

We will have featured exhibits by Zoë Gamell Brown, Jalen Thompson, and Christian Alvarado inside of the Farmers Market Pavilion, community organizations, and artists vendors.

Let’s create an atmosphere of inclusion and acceptance where everyone can learn more about each other’s cultures and share their experiences with one another.
