ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The DC Black Theatre & Arts Festival was founded in 2010 for the purpose of educational and performing arts theatre programs, and the first theatre festival of its kind, to recognize the importance of both urban and traditional theatre.
Our Mission is to create a diverse group of outstanding artists whose distinctive visions will give an artistic identity of uncommon richness and variety to all performances, for all people.
Each year, nearly 30,000 faithful theatre goers, playwrights, actors, family, and friends who make the pilgrimage to the Nation’s Capital to participate in this celebration of Art.
