River City Soul Fest

River City Soul Fest started in 1999 in hopes of providing a unique event that highlights African American culture and heritage through celebration and music. For the first time, this year’s festival features two days of R & B music headlined by Dru Hill and the Brian McKnight 4, followed by a day of Gospel. River City Soul Fest also features a variety of food and merchandise vendors with items available for purchase.
