Kwanzaa Fest 2012

1 Dec

Avant, Johnny Gill, T.I., Omarion and French Montana are all expected at Fair Park’s Automobile Building December 8th and 9th for the 2012 KwanzaaFest Concert, a popular event among the African American community every year! TI-kwanzaaIf you love hip hop, R&B, holiday crafts, food vendors, free activities for the family and celebrating the African traditions of Christmas then plan on attending KwanzaaFest 2012 this coming Sunday! In addition to the “fun” stuff like musical performances and tasty treats, KwanzaaFest is also known for its major health component by offering medical screenings to minorities in the Dallas community. Tons of black entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to showcase their products and services at the two-day Dallas event. About 60,000 entry tickets were dispersed last year in 2011. Don’t miss the excitement of the 22nd Annual KwanzaaFest in Dallas this year hosted by charismatic rapper from Atlanta T.I.!

Although KwanzaaFest is free to all, you must have a ticket to be admitted!




Here’s the music video for Avant’s newest single, “You and I”, with TV One’s R&B Diva KeKe Wyatt who first hit the music scene by doing a duet with the famed singer.
