Bringing soul to the city …
October 20 | 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. | FREE ENTRY
The Taste of Soul Festival is coming back to Los Angeles’ Crenshaw district for its 14thyear, bringing the African-American and neighboring communities together through soulful food, music, and entertainment. Yielding the power of togetherness in business and economic drive, this event brings thousands of people together in a place of respect, appreciation, and oneness.
“Taste of Soul has grown into the greatest demonstration of all that is possible for and within our community when we collectively pull our time, resources, and talents for the betterment of all,” says creator and founder Danny J. Bakewell. “The millions of people who have enjoyed Taste of Soul over the years sends a clear message to everyone that as businessmen and women, consumers and as a political force, we cannot and will not be ignored or denied.”
Taste of Soul will have five performance stages that have, in previous years, hosted legends like Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, War, and Doug E. Fresh. In the words of Bakewell, Taste of Soul is all about feeling the love.
