On Saturday, Aug. 17, the Groove City Culture Fest takes place from 1 to 7pm on Pine Street between Douglas and Elm Streets in Cambridge, MD. 

The event, which celebrates black culture, will showcase the history and culture of the African-American community, taking place in the heart of the historic African-American community, Pine Street. Attendees will enjoy live music and dance performances on two stages, fun for the kids, food (including a yock cook-off), fashion show, vendors, and much more. The live music includes Trouble Funk, local R$B and gospel singers, praise dancers, and more. The festival is free and open to the public.

The Groove City Culture Fest is a revival of a Black Culture Day originally organized July 6, 1974, also organized by a committee of citizens. In 1974 the event began with a parade and included speakers, a play, dancers. Sponsors for live entertainment are welcome and may contact event organizers at culturefest@downtowncambridge.org for more information. Find more info on the event’s Facebook page.
