Sankofa Fest ‘19

The sun keeps pushing through the clouds today ? so we can enjoy Sankofa Fest ‘19. Mayor Walsh visited Sankofa Park to say hello to neighbors, performers, and vendors. Sankofa Fest is a biannual of the Sankofa District which runs along South Salina Street from Taylor Street. The festival and district champions locally owned businesses, cultural, social, and artistic venues, and historic housing along the South Salina Street corridor.
