The Eastern Shore AFRAM festival is an annual African American cultural
festival which celebrates a variety of traditional arts, cultures, and stories
from across the African Diaspora and within the Delmarva community. These
treasures enrich a multitude of guests from across the Mid Atlantic - and beyond.
The cultural and community event includes features derived from African and Pan-
African traditions, influencing artistic (visual, performing, culinary and material),
educational (including oral histories and storytelling), and our Spiritual experiences.
