You'll have more time to enjoy Essence Fest in 2020.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the magazine, the party will go on for a full week instead of just a weekend.
The dates are July 1st through 5th.
The announcement came with the news that the Essence Festival will remain in New Orleans for at least the next 5 years.
Have you been to Essence? What was the best thing you experienced there? Will you be making plans to stay a week next year?
