What is CKC?

CKC is the acronym for Curls, Kinks & Culture.

Our Story

CKC is the ULTIMATE, annual Party In The Park! It’s also a Celebration of You! CKC Party In The Park is a melting pot, bringing out thousands to celebrate our natural beauty and cultures. Be a part of the sea of afros, curls, waves, locs, protective styles, fly barber cuts, sexy beards and beautiful people that come to CKC every year.

We kickoff with Yoga on the Lawn, then we eat, drink, shop, play games, dance, celebrate, get our hair done, laugh, converse, sit or lay in the grass, chill, turn up or turn down, did I already say, Dance? It’s so much fun! CKC Party In the Park has over 100 unique vendors with the latest natural product and services, original fashions, live art, experiential + interactive, fun activations and more.

Our Mission

CKC Party In the Park is also a great time for reflection because it is held in September, near the end of the year and right before the holidays and countdown for the next year. Be sure to make your way to our huge Reflection Fro Wall. Write out and post a sticky note of what you have accomplished this year that you are most proud of and stick it on the Fro Wall. You can also post a plan or two for progress for you for the upcoming year.

Did you know that when you write a plan or an idea down it is more likely that you will make it happen? I’m writing down that I will see you all on September 12th for our 5th annual CKC Party In The Park Event.
