The event is free to attend.

The Nubian Jam is back this year at Forest Park in Everett, Washington. This is the 29th year for the celebration of community and connection. The first event was held on July 3rd, 1993. Here’s a description from the Snohomish County Black Heritage Committee who organize and present the annual event.

A celebration of African and African American culture in the form of fellowship and community connectedness. The goal is to be an educational as well as an entertaining event. Through it, we strive to honor our elders, inspire, and encourage positive self-awareness in our youth. Our ultimate goal is to promote unity and fellowship by helping the community become aware of the beautiful richness of the Black culture.

The Nubian Jam is the oldest cultural celebration of its kind to honor and celebrate Black heritage in Snohomish County. There has only been one occasion when the event had to be cancelled, which was 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions associated with having physical gatherings

The event is free but parking is limited so people are encouraged to park at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church and take the free shuttle every 30 minutes. Here’s a link to the event page with more information.
