Together at Kwanzaa

Peace and blessings, 

As we come to the end of another year of living and working together to make the Triangle area a strong and thriving community, we would like to share with you a wonderful opportunity to make a lasting impression during Kwanzaa. The African American Dance Ensemble begun planning the 2nd Kwanzaa celebration that will be held at C3 at the Venue on December 28, 2023.

We invite your business or organization to participate in our Kwanzaa

Marketplace during our 2nd celebration. Over 300 visitors attends

this cultural extravaganza, which lasts from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The doors will open for vendors at 3:00 p.m. and each merchant will

be provided a 6-foot table and two chairs. Your participation as a

vendor will provide you the opportunity to reach a large audience and

show your support for a celebration that promotes the Triangle's

year-end success in 2023.


Kwanzaa has been celebrated by AADE since 1986 and in the city of Raleigh since 2023, this year will feature a

celebration of artists in the community. This event appeals to a diverse audience, as AADE seeks to preserve and promote the finest traditions of African and African American dance and music to the Triangle community and through this unique marketing opportunity you will increase your exposure to our target audience. 

Vendor space is limited, so please return the application with payment to reserve your space. The cost for vendors selling general merchandise is $50.00. If you have any further questions, please contact Demetrius Holder at

Peace and Love,


AADE Kwanzaa Committee
