Phoenix Fest is back for its 22nd year as Durham NC’s funkiest street music festival to celebrate the cultural legacy of Durham NC’s historic Hayti community and to deliver a fun-filled day of family-friendly entertainment for thousands on historic Fayetteville Street.
Fayetteville Street will be transformed into a bustling bazaar with eye-teasing vendor displays and lip-smacking food followed by all-day music with some of the area’s best talent on center stage until 6 pm.
You’re invited to share in this age-old cultural tradition to commemorate the hard work, vision and enduring spirit of the elders who founded Hayti over 100 years ago. Phoenix Fest is fun, it’s free and it’s for the whole family.
Phoenix Fest, sponsored by the Phoenix Shopping Centers, is an annual cultural celebration of the business and cultural legacy of Durham’s Hayti community, one of North Carolina’s oldest African American communities.
