What is Curlfest?

As the largest natural beauty festival in the United States since 2014, you can expect to see thousands of attendees skating around showing off their natural textures, and vendors selling assorted beauty-related goodies (including some free samples!”>. And of course, there will be standard festival fare: NYC’s best DJs, food, dancing, and skating. Above all, Curly Girl Collective and Curlfest support and draw attention to the movement of women who are embracing their beauty and who they are, natural texture and all. Take a look at this recap from 2019’s Curlfest to get an idea of what’s to come. 

If you haven’t gotten them yet, there’s still time to grab your tickets starting at $40 for general admission, which include access to: the roller rink (skates included while supplies last”>, the main stage and throwback dance party, as well as food and drinks to purchase separately. 

We’ll be there snapping photos of the curls and street style to bring the best inspiration to you – whether or not you can be there in person. So throw on your finest summer garb and link up with your best girls, guys, cousins and aunties at the rink for the curl celebration of this year—we’ll meet you there.
