Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett will be hosting the first annual Kwanzaa Celebration on Thursday, Dec. 29 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Connolly Center (90 Chelsea St.). As part of Mayor DeMaria’s “Everett For Everyone” initiative, join us in celebrating Kwanzaa with music, poetry, culture, food and live performances from Uprising Dance Theatre, Big Redd’s House, Janey David and more.
Don’t know much about Kwanzaa or never celebrated it before? That’s ok, because attendees will be introduced to the holiday, the meaning of it and the seven principles by African drum and dance group Uprising Dance Theatre. Following this, attendees will be treated to a jazz performance by Big Redd’s House and serenaded by vocalist Janey David with her magnificent voice.
All residents are welcome to attend this celebration of food, culture and community at our annual Kwanzaa Celebration.
