Penn Center Heritage Celebration

49. Penn Center Heritage Celebration

A three day long event, the Heritage Days Celebration at the Penn Center is a fun, festive event for everyone. The Gullah/Geechee/Sea Island history comes alive with folk arts, food, music, and crafts. As the first African-American school establish for freed slaves, the 50-acre historical site of the Penn School is the perfect location for the festival. Throughout the festival there are live demonstrations of West African/Gullah cultural connections, including bateau making, quilting, basket making, net making, and even rice production in an authentic rice shack. Gullah storytellers, gospel singers, drummers, and dancers all participate in the celebration. There is also a craft fair, a parade, a fish fry and gospel extravaganza! Don’t miss out!
