Who Got Soul ?

Clarence and Felecia Hampshire:  Co Founders

Soul Food Festival was established in 2002 by a group of community volunteers called "BATCOP" (Breaking Away The Cycle Of Pain), which was spearheaded by John Sanders. After year one of the first festival, Clarence and Felecia Hampshire resumed the responsibilities of the annual event. 

Since it's inception, the festival has grown from 500 attendees to a population of 3-5K festival attendees.
