Legacy Day 2020

Legacy Day 2020 Goes Virtual!


Join us for our virtual Legacy Day Celebration! Due to the current public health crisis, our planned outdoor festival is now available to everyone online.


Legacy Day is produced by volunteers and funded by our sponsors – allowing us to provide the programs to the entire community free of charge. On Legacy Day 2021, all sponsors will be recognized on large banners hanging at Sumner Hall and at the Bordley History Center. They will also be acknowledged at the Recognition Reception and receive complimentary Sumner Hall Memberships.  Sponsorship Levels: R&B ($1000+); Jazz ($500); Blues ($250); Hip Hop ($100); Ragtime ($50); and Bebop ($25).
