We continue to raise the bar by bringing engaging activities to the ESSENCE Fest. Attendees can visit our Temple of Flavor booth at the Ernest Morial Convention Center Friday, June 30 through Sunday, July 2, and enjoy live performances, a selfie photo booth, nail bar and giveaways, including ESSENCE Fest concert tickets and the McDonald’s tote bag. For the first time, McDonald’s will host a late-night party, The Midnight Mix on Saturday, July 1.
We’ll also host the 14th annual McDonald’s 365Black® Awards with the ESSENCE Festival. McDonald’s is taking a new twist on the awards this year by celebrating all female honorees. The Power of Inspiration Awards Luncheon is on Sunday, July 2 at the Ritz-Carlton.
