Phoenix Fest

The 18th annual Phoenix Fest will bring thousands to historic Fayetteville Street in Durham, NC again to celebrate the musical and cultural heritage of the Hayti community -- one of our city's and state's oldest African American communities. This year Durham's sesquicentennial will also celebrate the 150th anniversary of our city's founding in 1869, making the celebration of the Hayti community all the more meaningful in the context of the city's history.
