The 30th Annual African Street Festival showcased natural divas and fantastic African-American History



Every year the African-American Cultural Alliance hosts the African Street Festival. The festival boasts more than 50 vendors and informational booths, performances, and informational seminars. Each year the festival get better especially with the recent location change. The Alliance has moved the festival to Hadley Park in North Nashville. Guests love the change. It builds a sense of community and the historic park, once a plantation, can support more guests.

The Natural in Nashville crew: (l to r) Candice, Toya, Ashiya, and Melissa
The NIN team met at the Festival to snap photos, eat tasty food, and socialize with our readers! Let me tell you, it was so nice to meet you guys. It makes me so excited about our upcoming meet-up (It's coming ya'll, I promise). So let's get to my favorite photos. Make sure to hit up the Facebook page to see even more photos!
