Bayview Hunters Point’s longest-running annual event, the Black Cuisine Festival, was created to highlight culinary talents passed through generations.

The Black Cuisine Festival shares delectable food rooted in African American tradition, bringing people together for a little taste of soul.

Plus there’s a special live performance by ’90s R&B/Soul stars Tony! Toni! Toné!

Enjoy live music, vendor booths, a Kid’s zone, and a dazzling variety of food venues. Some of the offerings include fried chicken, catfish, oxtails, ribs, links, black-eyed peas, red beans and rice, greens, yams, mac & cheese, cornbread, sweet potato pie, peach cobbler, pound cake and other soulful delights–all of which will be sure to rival mama and grandma’s down-home cooking.
