The 1st Annual East-West Music & Dance Festival will bring eastern and western artists from the Tampa Bay community and beyond together for a one-of-a-kind event to showcase the talents of musicians and dance performers, stretching hands across geographic and cultural divides in order to fellowship together in the universal language of song and dance. The festival will feature both small and large group performances. Highlighting the festival, will be performances from authentic African musicians, vibrant drummers, colorful Indian dancers, sensual Flamenco performers and many more. This all-day family-friendly event will also feature multicultural activities, food vendors, and a kids play area. The event is supported by a Special Events Partnership Grant from the Cultural Arts Commission, part of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County.
