This year’s theme “UNITY IN THE COMMUNITY,” allows everyone to embrace our differences.  

Harambee is an East African Swahili word meaning “Let’s Pull Together” or Unity” originally created as a safe alternative to Trick-or-Treating where the Kids are our VIP’s.

Over the past 44 years, and with the support of longtime partners such as The MLK Jr Center, City of Dallas, Citizens’ Committee to Save Our Children Inc. (501c3), KHVN and KKDA have been able to host more than 5,000 kids and attendees over the years. The Dallas Harambee Festival has secured its place as one of the oldest and largest cultural events in North Texas.
