It is with the joy and love of Jesus Christ that we, the family of Alfred Street, warmly welcome you to our 17th Annual HBCU College Festival. We are honored to support our HBCUs as we reflect on our history, celebrate our present, and invest in the future of our students.

Excitement about this event has spread from coast to coast–from Wasilla, Alaska to Washington, D.C.! Our desire to accommodate the tremendous growth in attendance and increase the Festival’s reach has prompted the relocation of the 2019 Festival to Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

The HBCU College Festival is FREE, but everyone must register.

Thank you for your interest in the upcoming Festival–we look forward to warmly welcoming you!

A special thank you to all 2019 HBCU Festival Sponsors for supporting the Festival and our efforts to expose and launch so many students into their legacy through education–To God be the glory for the things He has done!
