Give Back Festival
In 2002, the Nicetown CDC partnered with Nicetown native from the entertainment industry Ms. Jade, to create the Give Back To The Community Festival. Ms. Jade called on her friends Chris & Neef and others to help produce the event. Today, the Give Back is a 2-day signature event and community celebration that utilizes arts, culture and education activities to engage and mobilize our community towards a healthier, safer, revitalized community. It also highlights the Nicetown CDC’s planning and revitalization achievements.
The Give Back is not just another block party. It is a popular destination that appeals to large audiences - everyone from youth to seniors. Highlights include the ZAR Memorial Education Scholarships, Ballin’ For Peace, Ivan Robinson Amateur Boxing, Nutrition & Fitness Weekend, Fraternity Step Off, Children’s Activities - and the highly anticipated Friday & Saturday Evening Concerts. The Health and Services Information Pavilion features more than thirty service providers with health screenings, service/ program information and giveaways. This, along with our multi-cultural Vendors Merchandise and Food Bazaar will serve thousands over the two-day event.
