Things to do

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Hanukkah and Christmas may be over, but the 2015 holiday season isn’t done yet: Saturday December 26 through Friday January 1 marks Kwanzaa, a week long commemoration of African heritage and culture. At this family-friendly fest you can catch dance, theater and a unbelievable beat-box performance by Doug E. Fresh; peruse arts, crafts and food vendors at an International Marketplace; and learn about the 48-year-old holiday at a screening of Maya Angelou–narrated documentary The Black Candle: A Kwanzaa Celebration, introduced by director MK Asante and followed with a tribute to Angelou.
