August Quarterly

The oldest African American religious festival in the nation, the August Quarterly is an annual celebration to commemorate the founding of the first African American church in Wilmington and in the United States. Each summer, attendees gather at Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park to share this heritage through music, crafts, singing, preaching, stage performances, children’s events, storytelling, food, African clothing sales, and more.
