The festival is in recognition of Dr. Carver's first love, art; this day-long festival encourages artistic expression by means of music, dance, paintings, sculpture, crafts, vendors and other family-oriented activities.
The George Washington Carver Commemorative Festival, formerly known as the George Washington Carver Arts & Crafts Festival, celebrates the life and contributions of the famed scientist of Tuskegee (Institute) University. The new name designation for this annual event offers a broader opportunity for us to commemorate the diverse legacy of Dr. Carver.
