Our Culture shapes and molds the way we think, approach life and understand the world.
Culture impacts all aspect of our lives; values, concerns, hopes, and future outlook. The African American Cultural Collaborative of Mercer County (TAACC) Educates, Empowers, and Unites Africans in the diaspora through cultural arts, health and wellness, entertainment, and sports. We strive to educate the community on the African diaspora with the inclusion of people from all racial backgrounds. This collaboration presents genuine opportunities to solidify community relations and celebrate our rich history and heritage at multiple venues.
TAACC’s Trenton African American Cultural Festival brings awareness, entertainment, and cultural insight to Trenton, NJ. The annual event celebrates the history, culture, heritage, and arts that represent the rich traditions and zestful spirit of African contributions throughout the diaspora. Following the legacy of the African American culture’s Juneteenth celebration, the goal of the festival is to inspire an appreciation for the diversity, influence and contributions of the African Diaspora.
The T.A.A.C.F. Executive Board strives to highlight important connections between our state’s constituent areas while bridging diversity, inclusion and cultural values. Since 2011 the home base of our events has been at Cadwalader Park in Trenton, New Jersey. The Trenton African American Cultural Festival organization has provided a variety of events throughout the year that include Youth Sports and Health Expo, Trenton Youth Film Festival, Art Exhibits at Ellarslie Museum in Cadwalader Park, Black History Month Events, and the Trenton African American Cultural Festival that has attracted thousands to Cadwalader Park for the last 5 years.
