ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A longtime festival returns to the Star City.

The Henry Street Heritage Festival will return September 17 to Elmwood Park.

It’s an event filled with food, entertainment, shopping and educational forums.

Its goal is to celebrate and showcase African-American heritage as expressed through the performing arts, crafts, cuisines, customs, and merchandise.

Henry Street was the center of Roanoke’s Black community during segregation, and has since become an integral part of Roanoke’s history.

Proceeds from the festival support Roanoke’s Harrison Museum of African American Culture.

Thank you for voting the Henry Street Heritage Festival as "BEST LOCAL FESTIVAL" 2022 Silver Winner in The Roanoker!
