MAVUNO Festival of African American Arts & Culture

Each fall, Sweetwater celebrates our MAVUNO Festival of African American Art & Culture and 2021 is MAVUNO’s 25th anniversary! This year’s MAVUNO will offer an outdoor festival highlighting a wide range of artistic talents by our region’s Black artists. From visual art to music and dance, there will be something for everyone to enjoy!

More details coming soon!
