The Colorado Black Arts Festival has invited special guests from around the region to help us celebrate in a spectacle of color, movement, dance, art, and music. Civic clubs, youth groups, churches, and businesses are collectively preparing creative forces to design colorful elements which demonstrate a cohesive community spirit of cooperation. The Boogaloo Celebration Parade is a festival tradition featuring marching bands, drum and drill teams from Colorado and the region, themed floats, sport and entertainment personalities, local dance teams, and other exciting elements that create one of a kind performance parade.

The parade route will be on festival grounds in historic Denver City Park. For 2022, the end of the parade will be at the Kuumba Stage where we invite any group that wants to perform a 3-minute routine on the stage for festival attendees to enjoy. This has been a very popular feature of the parade over the years and we want to continue the tradition of performance.
