Black Wall Street Festival

Showcasing a myriad of black owned businesses from the savory cuisines of food trucks to the locally owned staples in the community, Black Wall Street seeks to empower, strengthen, and affirm the relentless spirit of those who have built and sustained businesses and beam with black pride. This is our 5th Annual Event and the first Black Wall Street “A Journey to the Woodlawn community”.
There will be a  “Taste of Wall Street,” Art Row, Vendor Row, live entertainment and fun activities for families and children. Also featured, an “Ode to the Past” exhibit with tributes to black historical figures and influencers will be on display. We want our event to educate and celebrate the legacy of Black Wall Street while highlighting black entrepreneurs making an impact in the city. The festival will occur on Saturday September 10th from 12 noon to 8pm at the corner of 61st and Vernon – Champlain.
