Event Details

Join the City of Lakeland as we celebrate Black History Month at the Black History Festival in Jackson Park and the Coleman-Bush Building on February 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with various artisan vendors, kids’ activities, food trucks, and entertainment.

The community can look forward to outstanding dance performances by Crystals World of Dance, bounce houses for the little ones, and an opportunity to interact with the neighborhood associations that make our City great! This year, be sure to venture inside the Coleman-Bush Building to check out a neighborhood history walk featuring information on some of the pioneers of Lakeland’s black community provided by the Lakeland History and Culture Center.

There will be a variety of vendors selling their wares ranging from clothing and handbags to books and candles – visit the city website to apply to be a vendor.

The event is FREE to the public but bring a little spending money for the food and merchandise vendors. You’ll be glad you did!
