Overview

Sistrunk Historical Festival is a cultural organization that celebrates the accomplishments of people of African descent. The organization is named in honor of Dr. James Sistrunk, one of the first African-American Physicians in Broward County. Annual activities provide educational, historical, and recreational events in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area. They attract thousands of participants from the tri-county area and other parts of the State.  Each year a large parade and festival draw thousands of people to enjoy international foods, fellowship and networking, local and national entertainment, and family-centric activities. Through the Sistrunk Scholarship Program, we proudly support Broward County Students financially in their pursuit of higher learnings. The Sistrunk events are amongst the oldest African-American promotions in the Broward County area. We are proud to continually provide cultural, social, political and educational events that help to increase awareness of the contributions of our diverse community.
