Poindexter Village Drum Circle

Champion Park at Poindexter 240 North Champion Avenue, 43203 Open in Google Map
10 a.m.–5 p.m.

For centuries, drum circles have been a source of cultural expression and unity. This outdoor activity engages people safely and allows them to social distance while experiencing community, rhythm and sound.

Elder drummers, community leaders, musicians, neighbors and past residents will gather with African drums and lawn chairs to share stories, song and dance.

The Poindexter Village Drum Circle itinerary features various arts, drum call-and-response and drum-making craft tables. Community members who participate in drum-making craft tables will make a take-home wooden box drum, which can be decorated and used during the Drum Circle call-and-response.

During the event, local artist vendors and food trucks will be present and there to enjoy. Join us as we participate in a vibrant community experience and learn what it means to beat as one.
