MOJA Arts Festival 


MOJA Arts Festival


The MOJA Arts Festival is a celebration of African-American and Caribbean Arts. Selected as one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events for many years, the MOJA Arts Festival promises an exciting line-up of events with a rich variety of traditional favorites. Nearly half of the events are admission-free, and the remainder are offered at  modest ticket prices.

The event is a multi-disciplinary festival produced and directed by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs.

Moja, a Swahili word meaning “One,” is the appropriate name for this festival celebration of harmony among all people in the community. The Festival highlights the many African-American and Caribbean contributions to western and world cultures. MOJA’s wide range of events include visual arts, classical music, dance, gospel, jazz, poetry, R&B music, storytelling, theatre, children’s activities, traditional crafts, ethnic food, and much, much more. In addition to its myriad arts presentations, MOJA also includes an active and busy educational outreach component of workshops in the public schools and senior outreach in senior citizen homes.
