The Dallas Arboretum hosted a kickoff reception recently for the 3rd Annual Black Heritage Celebration presented by Bank of America at the Arboretum’s Alex Camp House.
The Black Heritage Celebration spotlights the unique talents, art, products and services from the local black community against the beautiful backdrop of the Dallas Arboretum. This year’s event will take place on May 6 and 7.
The Dallas Arboretum also will partner with the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce to host an Entrepreneur Showcase that will spotlight local business owners and a children’s celebration for kids of all ages.
Janet Jack, Dallas Arboretum board member and Black Heritage Celebration chairperson, and Tiffaney Dale Hunter, Black Heritage Celebration host committee chair, welcomed sponsors, host committee members, and influential business and community leaders to the reception.
Many activities are planned, including entertainment by Don Diego Band and Clover the Violinist, cooking demonstrations with Smoky John’s BBQ and a fashion show produced by Willie Johnson that will showcase local black designers and the latest trends.
The two-day event will feature a vendor showcase with roughly 40 Black vendors selling and displaying unique products and services.
Get on the list.
