MOJA Arts Festival
Sept 28th-Oct 8th

The MOJA Arts Festival is a celebration of Caribbean and African-American arts. A Swahili word, MOJA, means “ONE” and it is the goal of participating committees and sponsors to bring the community together to explore and appreciate cultural skill. The diversity of enriching musical acts includes gospel, jazz, contemporary country western, and R&B. Other events to be appreciated include cultural poetry, storytelling, theater, traditional crafts, and children's activities. The smell of regional and ethnic cuisine will fill the air while you experience the surrounding cultural venues. The MOJA Arts Festival takes place at the end of September, beginning of October. Because of the large number of acts, shows, and displays several local buildings house the events. Some locations include; Allan Park, Avery Research Center, Borough Houses, Burke High School, Calvary Episcopal Church, Charleston County Library, Charleston Music Hall, Dock Street Theater, Fountain Walk Dock, Marion Square, Old Slave Mart Museum, The Shaw Center and the YWCA of Greater Charleston. Visit the MOJA Festival website for a more complete list of venues and events.
