HapCO Music Foundation presents the Oakland Arts & Music Festival. This festival, hosted in the town of Oakland, encourages artistic expression among youth and celebrates the work of local artists. The main goals of the festival are to to raise awareness of the importance of art and music in education, help ensure that every grade aged school student experiences the impact of arts in his or her life, provide programs for exposure, and education in the arts and make available scholarships for student artisans to attend any college or university in the United States. The festival historically honors Juneteenth, now celebrated throughout the United States with picnics and festivals. We present artistry as exhibited in those who contribute to African-American culture. The festival is organized in collaboration with Orange and Seminole Counties to increase exposure and encourage community participation in the arts.
