celebrating black history

About TigerTrail

         The Tiger Trail Festival mission is to continually display and honor the legacy of ordinary people, doing  extraordinary things in our city today, yesterday, and beyond. 


      The Tiger Trail Festival Celebration is an exciting Black History musical and educational festival comprised into four weekends of thrilling events: At the Pompano Tiger Trail Festival, we are committed to creating an inclusive celebration of our community, culture, and unity. Our event brings together people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests, and offers an opportunity to experience the vibrancy of our community through music, dance, food, and art. Our festival is the perfect way to connect with your community, discover new cultural experiences, and make lasting memories with friends and family. Come and join us for a truly spectacular celebration!

        The Tiger Trail Festival Celebration began with the City of Pompano Beach in 1995, by members of the Blanche Ely High School class of 1970, and has grown over the years to include committee members from the classes of the 70's-to present date. Tiger Trail Festival has been successfully organized and infused for 27 years.
