This Sunday, the Odunde Festival returns to Graduate Hospital for its 40th year of African American cultural celebrations — think food, shopping, performances and more. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and be sure to keep an eye out for a free giveaway from Visit Philly.
Also on Sunday, the LGBT Pride Parade and Festival hit Midtown Village and Penn’s Landing with a ton of great events all day long.
