Shake It Up At The MOJA Finale

Simply put, the Lowcountry’s food, music, and culture would be dull and tasteless without the heavy influence of African-American Charlestonians. The importance of Afro and Caribbean dance, writing, visual arts, and music are all celebrated each fall during the MOJA Arts Festival (September 27-October 7, 2018). The finale, held at Hampton Park, puts a resounding exclamation mark on the party, including hip-shaking bands as well as food and craft vendors. Much like Spoleto, it’s an event where lawn chairs and picnic blankets are encouraged. Best of all, it’s free.
