2-Day Music Fest

Experience Culture, Excitement, Music & Fun

The 2-day weekend of events is the heart and soul of the Tampa Bay area communities. The Music Fest not only features music from national artists and showcases local and regional entertainment, but also includes an array of health and wellness, educational and cultural activities, displays, vendors, and themes highlighting the riches of the African American Diaspora.

Areas within the Music Fest are separated into what we call “Villages” in homage of the historical ideal that “it takes a village to raise a child.” The themed villages are:

Artists Village: Features local and national artists showcasing their wide selection or original artwork.

Authors Village: Features local and regional authors showcasing their literature and books.

Children’s Village: Face painting, storytelling, educational activities, and arts and crafts, as well as several other engaging activities for children.

Health and Wellness Village: Adults and children are offered free health screenings for HIV, diabetes, hypertension, glaucoma and many other prevalent health concerns.   As well as, information and demonstrations on wellness and how to begin and/or maintain a healthy life.

Corporate Village: Bay area businesses have the opportunity to reinforce their brand. TBBHF supports community development, and the Music Fest allows local businesses optimal opportunities by presenting a platform to promote products and distribute promotional materials.

Technology Village: The “All Things Tech” village highlights the best for-profit and not-for-profit technology organizations contributions to the community and STEM related programs.

In addition to the villages; the Music Fest kicks off with a 5K Walk/Run for Health, showcases a live interactive drum circle, large line dancing forum, clothing vendors and food trucks. The event provides many safe, fun, family friendly activities for everyone, including pets.

Past Music Fest performers have included Angie Stone, Jonathan Butler, Ledsi, Atlantic Starr, Doug E. Fresh, Marsha Ambrosius, Sugarhill Gang, Confunkshun, Klymaxx, Rose Royse, Najee, Eric Darius, Nick Colionne, Pieces of a Dream and the Ohio Players, just to name a few. The 2 Day Music Fest is FREE to attend and open to the general public.
