Urban Raw Festival

Enjoy everything from fresh food, music, theatre and dynamic presentations which inspire us to live consciously and intentionally at the Urban Raw Festival Event.
Urban Raw Festival Co-Director's Marie Amaya and Butterfly, along with the festival's Producer Alexandreia Maya Tolbert, join us in studio to tell us about the Urban Raw Festival and the importance of eating healthy food.

The Urban Raw Festival is the brainchild of SolFood Catering and NBHT, Inc. 

There will be food demonstrations (all plant-based), live music from Stic. Man of Dead Prez, jazz musician Michael Eubanks, hip hop artist  Roni Poet and folk singer Laura Lee.

An original play by Miko and Maat. Ra Butterfly, who has just been recently awarded with a highly competitive playwright fellowship from the Arkansas Arts Council, will be performed in the evening and children's theatre by Agnolia Gay will take place in the afternoon.

Leah Patterson of Etniq Cosmetics will be offering her cruelty-free vegan makeup line.

Additionally, there will be acrobatics, fire spitting and partner yoga demonstrated by RECREATION STUDIOS.

Oh and lets not forget the COOKING CONTEST!

Festival goers can bring a vegetarian (no animal by-products) dish to be tasted by celebrity judges.

Please arrive with the dish by 10 a.m.

Three finalist will be chosen for a cook-off!

Documentary film screenings during the early afternoon will also take place and be hosted by one of our partners ARBIFF and Angela Burt. 

Finally there will be plenty of vendors there for festival goers to wet their appetite with delicious offerings.

All this and more can be found at Wildwood Park for the Arts on September 7th from 9am to 10pm.
