NBAF Gala: What Becomes A Legend!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


The National Black Arts Festival is a nonprofit organization that is celebrating its 30th anniversary of providing stellar artistic and educational programs in music, dance, film, visual and literary arts, and theater. Celebrated within and outside of Atlanta, NBAF is recognized as the oldest multidisciplinary arts organization in the United States focused exclusively on the arts and on artists of African descent.

Through its annual festival program season, which includes world class performances, master classes, talk-back conversations, a film program and symposium, through ongoing public programs in the visual, literary and performing arts and arts education and youth development programs, NBAF offers its local, national and international audiences experiences that are extraordinary and enriching. The NBAF Gala is the premier event of the summer social season.

The hallmarks of the annual gala are lively entertainment and great performances, a silent auction of unique items presented in a spectacular venue where hundreds of our supporters and fun-loving patrons come together to celebrate and to sustain NBAF's operations, programs and rich cultural legacy.
