ATL Conjure & Culture Fest Celebrates African Spiritual Traditions
The first of its kind in Atlanta, the ATL Conjure & Culture Festival will be held October 26 and 27 to celebrate the spiritual traditions of persons of African American descent and ancestry. Its aim is to be a safe place for those seeking knowledge of spiritual traditions and to help educate people about how to connect spiritually.
On October 26, Market Day will run from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and will include workshops, vendors, food trucks, a kids’ club, live performances and more.
On October 27, the Closing Gala will run from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and will feature a banquet celebration with live music, poetry readings and a hair and fashion show.
“Navigating spiritual paths can be a daunting task when undertaken alone, so it is my intention to provide my sisters and brothers with the resources needed to assist in their personal evolution,”
says event founder Tesi J., formerly Communications Director for Gemstone Management.
Vendor markets and stage performances for the festival will take place in a parking lot at the corner of Hairston Road and Memorial Drive in Stone Mountain. Featured workshops will be held nearby at Ibu Ile Spiritual Center & Botanica, 6009 Memorial Dr. Unit 7, Stone Mountain. Some workshops and the banquet will be held at John Koryan Event Center, 6009 Memorial Dr. Unit 10, Stone Mountain.
Entrance to the event is free, workshops range in price from $5 to $50 and tickets to the Sunday banquet are $50. A variety of access passes are available online. For more information, visit ATLConfureFest.com, Facebook.com/Conjurefest/ and Instagram@ATLConjureFest.
