EUGENE, Ore. -- Several community members gathered at Alton Baker Park Saturday afternoon for Eugene's first Black Cultural Festival.
The event featured food, live music and vendors from Black-owned businesses.
Ayanna Moriguchi, the early learning specialist at United Way for the Lane African American/Black Student Success program, was excited for a chance to bring the community together.
"The focus is to bring Black people together to celebrate their culture and to meet with other Black people and share knowledge and ideas and buy stuff from vendors," Moriguchi said.
Masks were required during the events and vaccines were offered.
The festival ran from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
