Essence Festival 2023
June 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Thrown by Essence, the long-standing Black-female-centered magazine, the Essence Festival of Culture is considered the largest Black culture and music event in the United States.
Around 500,000 people journey to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans every year for the highly anticipated occasion, which this year will be held from June 29 to July 3. The three-day festival is an epic intersection of arts, culture and concerts, with Ms. Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliott, Megan Thee Stallion and more A-list stars set to perform.
