About the event

Harambee is an East African Swahili word meaning “Let’s Pull Together” or Unity. Harambee is the oldest and largest African American cultural event in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, with over 15,000 in attendance.

The Harambee Dallas festival is a community-based educational and cultural event that was created in the early 1970’s, by the founding members of  the Harambee Festival Steering Committee, a group of community minded citizens who gathered at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center to form an alternative celebration to Halloween. Their objective was to organize a celebration that would provide a positive, cultural experience for children, youth and adults. Click here for more information
