In the 1800s, “The Blocks” was known as the Black business, entertainment and cultural district in the city of Pensacola—or the “Harlem of the South.” Today, it holds claim to being the center of artistic and cultural renaissance as an economic resurgence. Join us for a 2-day festival filled with culture, music, fun, family and food!


This two-day public mural project will allow artists to visually and vocally tell their version of the African-American culture and experience. Prepare to be dazzled by artist Carter Gatson, aka “Carter J”, and airbrush artist, Michael Ogden, aka “Chaz.”
