Penn Center Heritage Days Celebration

Heritage Days Celebration is a three-day cultural event celebrating the Gullah/Geechee/Sea Island history, folk arts, food, music, crafts and West African cultural legacy. Located at the Penn School, one of the first schools for enslaved Africans on St. Helena Island, visitors can experience the unique setting of the 50-acre historic campus of Penn Center. Special events for the weekend include demonstrations of West African/ Gullah cultural connections, including bateau making, quilting, basket making and net making; live demonstrations of rice production in an authentic rice shack; Gullah storytellers; singers; African drummers; dancers; gospel singers; a craft fair; a parade; a fish fry and gospel extravaganza and lots of "fun fuh de chillun" (fun for the children). Parking available on campus.
