Kuumba Festival

The Kuumba Festival is presented by African American Appalachian Arts, Inc. (AAAA), an arts organization that focuses on positive social and community development by utilizing creative methods of education through cultural artistic programming and development.

The Kuumba Festival (KUUMBA means Creativity in Key Swahili) was started in 1989 by local Knoxville artists and community activists who were looking to showcase local African American art and artists for the sole purpose of sharing, educating and exposing rich cultural art forms to the Knoxville community. This event gives African American Appalachian Arts Inc.(AAAA) an avenue to reach out and service the Greater Knoxville community through the offering of cultural arts activities. KUUMBA Festival is located in three primary locations including: Market Square/Downtown, Haley Heritage Square, and Morningside Park.
