Traditionally held over Fourth of July weekend every summer in New Orleans, we look forward to Essence Fest all year for its one-of-a-kind celebration of Black culture. This year, the festival has gone virtual with two back-to-back weekends of music, entertainment and empowerment from June 25-27 and July 2-4. Performances, webinars and guest speakers will be a part of the fun. The best part – it’s all FREE! Just be sure to register on the festival website in advance.
