The Atlanta Celebration will run from Friday, October 29 to Saturday, October 30, 2021.
10 YEARS AND STILL COUNTING!
The last 18 months have been difficult for so many. As a Black arts organization, we are tirelessly committed to keeping Black theatre alive. The fight is real, but we are here to win. Sometimes things happen and we are forced to make changes to keep going.
Unfortunately, DeKalb County, after making a public announcement of a June reopening, has just notified us that the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center will be closed until 2022.
We are angry, disappointed, and frustrated, but we've been here before. The struggle for Black arts organizations is so real on so many levels. We are so sorry for all the inconvenience this will cost/cause you and us.
In spite of it all, we're still winning! We have already secured the new venue and we are determined to tell our stories. Absolutely nothing is going to stop us from celebrating 10 years of Black theatre excellence,
your support, and the artists' contributions that made the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival a world brand!
THANKS TO YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
We are so excited to announce that we have secured the fabulous Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre for October 30th! An amazing covered amphitheater in historic Mableton, GA just 20 minutes NE of Atlanta in Cobb County.
We are currently reaching out to nearby hotels to host the events on October 29th.
THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
You know how we do! When faced with a challenge we dig deeper and make things happen. This is our history behind the scenes and on stage. The show must go on!
This year is going to be even better. This change has given us the opportunity to expand our programming schedule giving you more entertainment value and enjoyment for an AMAZING experience.
The new schedule will be announced in just two short weeks.
WON'T HE DO IT!
Friday, October 29, 2021
The festival will kick off on Friday, October 29th with engaging panels, valuable workshops, our popular Staged Reading Series, and an elegant all Black evening affair. This will take place at our host hotel (TBA).
Saturday, October 30, 2021
The festival will culminate into a grand finale theatre party at the Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre! We are currently restructuring the line-up to bring you the "Best of the Fest" that better suits this amazing venue.
We want to cover every detail before making the final announcements.
We need your support and understanding now more than ever as we continue to tell our stories and keep Black theatre alive. We can't do this without you. Thank you!
