Every year, mixed into the music, food, and fun. We dedicate time to those who dedicate themselves to our community. The 2019 honorees were selected for their deep commitment to the community and their impact. The theme of this years festival is community empowerment and our honorees have gone above and beyond to empower, strengthen, and invest in the kind of community we all deserve. Congratulations!
