More Details

This year’s theme is “Harambee! Keeping it Clean & Green.”

Saturday October 26th at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center in Dallas from 10 am until 6pm.

Harambee is a Swahili word meaning “Let’s Pull Together” or “Unity.” A full day of Family Fun! While the kids are rock climbing, riding the mechanical bull, in the photo booth or just enjoying any of the interactive games the adults can take advantage of the Health Screenings, Job Fair, Art expos and enjoy the live performances. Remember the lives of those we’ve lost during our Memorial Celebration.

"Harambee is now the longest-running festival of its kind -- a unity festival that now brings together all cultures." - Norma Adams Wade DALLAS MORNING NEWS

All Volunteers are able to earn community service hours. Plus a diverse collection of vendors for Shopping and Specialty Cuisines! To become a vendor the only thing required is a $50 Visa Gift Card; which will be given to pre registered families in need.

The festival has become quite a success with well over 5,000 people attending annually and has always been a safe alternative to Halloween, every child gets a free treat bag. FREE Admission. FREE Parking. Our major sponsors this year are The City of Dallas, Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District (DTPID), KNON, KKDA, KRnB, Heaven 97 and The Citizens’ Committee to Save Our Children Inc.
