Mavuno Festival 2022

A display of African American art and culture in the community, Mavuno was created 26 years ago by Black artists and educators in Sewickley to celebrate African American creativity, experience, and talent in our region and beyond. The overarching goal of this event is inclusivity of all people, highlighting the significance and achievements of Black, Indigenous, People of Color.

We are currently seeking BIPOC artists, vendors, and small business owners to participate in our Mavuno Festival on Saturday September 17th from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. to sell their goods.
