WHAT IS THE ATLANTA BLACK THEATRE FESTIVAL? 

what is black theatre? 

​​The Atlanta Black Theatre Festival is one of the top storytelling festivals in the nation celebrating the African diaspora.  Experience 40 plays and events in just four (4) days that focus on embracing our African heritage.  This is our 6th year paying tribute today's most prolific artists while sharing colorful stories of triumph and humanity.


In just a few short years, the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival has burst on to the Atlanta theater scene, rendering over 200 live events presented by 1,300 literary, visual and performing artists. Whether you're a fan of Tyler Perry, August Wilson or just a lover of world class Black Art, there's something for you at this popular fall festival! 


So don't just pick a play, pick a day (or all 4) to immerse yourself in a marathon of bold theatre. The full schedule of events and festival theatre tickets are available now.


Thoroughly ENJOY!
