Kwanzaa: The 52nd Annual Harvest Festival of African Culture
Sunday, Dec. 16 from 1-6pm
The Montclair Public Library proudly invites friends and neighbors of the community to the 52nd Annual Harvest Festival of African Culture (and the Library’s 30th year celebrating Kwanzaa).

We are excited to welcome back Mama Yaa, of Pyramyd DanceCompany, who will kick off the event with a traditional Kwanzaa libation ceremony at the Ancestral Table and the lighting of the Seven Candles. Enjoy music, dance and drama from the African Diaspora performed by Pyramyd Dance. Children and their adults will also enjoy face-painting and crafts. All are invited to enjoy the Karamu ( The Feast) of traditional African dishes.
