Between concerts with the music industry’s top talent to inspiring seminars led by today’s most influential thinkers, there’s a lot more to experience at the ESSENCE Festival.

The full list of art, community and food vendors who will be participating this year was announced today, and they cover just about any interest you may have. Whether you’d like to shop for that special piece of art for your living room or want to learn ways to improve your overall health, there’s something for you.

And if that’s not enough, swing by the ESSENCE Bookstore, which features titles released by some of the Festival’s speakers and talent. Special book signings will also be held throughout the weekend.
