This year’s festivities will begin Friday, May 24th at 7 PM with a reception at the Back Center (2222 S. Harbor City Blvd. in Melbourne, Fl 32901) that includes (renowned local artist) the Highwaymen and live entertainment.
On Saturday, May 25th from 11 AM to 7 PM, we will move within walking distance of the Melbourne’s Founders tiny house near Crane Creek built in 1884. There the focus will be on the three Black freedmen: Wright Brothers, Peter Wright and Balaam Allen the first to settle here shortly after the civil war. We will also present live musical entertainment, local food favorites, merchandise vendors, artist displays, inflatable bounce houses, interactive robotic demonstrations, flight simulator, and the ever-popular Historical Wall.
On Sunday, May 26th from 2 PM to 7 PM the Festival will culminate with live gospel music from local and national recording artists, and our many vendors will return from Saturday with their goods.
Each year the Greater Allen Development Corporation and local volunteers from the Melbourne community, present our annual festival as an opportunity to not only entertain visitors of all ages, races, and genders but also to spread education about African American heritage that led to the foundation of Melbourne, FL.
