House Decorating Contest!


Due to COVID, we can’t have our traditional parade. But we want you to still be a part of the festivities!


We want the residents of the EAST END AREA (between Short Street and Loudon Avenue, Broadway to Midland) to decorate your houses in true Roots & Heritage Festival style.  The 2021 Festival theme is “Black Excellence – Still, Like Air I Rise”.  Decorate your houses highlighting the theme of the Festival, celebrating African American Culture and Heritage.


The Festival Committee will judge the houses on Saturday, September 25, 2021 starting at 11:00 a.m. so all decorations must be up and ready for judging by then.  Winners will be announced on Sunday, September 26.


Prizes will be given for the best decorated houses so GET CREATIVE!


So that we don’t miss you in the judging, please register below:
