A cornucopia of music, arts, crafts, dance and Afrocentric celebration awaits you at the 11th Annual Leimert Park Village Heritage Festival, showcasing all the greatness and soul of Los Angeles’ rich African-American legacy that persists and thrives. Also Sunday: the all-day Afrofuturist Block Party, an initiative of Leimert Park artist Timothy Washington which unveils the potential of those future days that race closer toward the community with every passing moment. It’s a festival that gives new meaning to the term “hands-on” — because if the future isn’t there in the hands of the community, who knows who’ll seize it?

Leimert Park Village, 4330 Degnan Blvd., Leimert Park; Sat.-Mon., Aug. 31-Sept. 2, noon-3 p.m.; free. (323) 299-6124, eventbrite.com/e/leimert-park-village-heritage-festival-tickets-68633802551.
