The Black Owned Business (BOB) Festival welcomes all people and ages
to come together to share in the celebration of Black business resilience. The event features interactive
activities, live music, art, dance, vendors, food trucks and information about the thriving Black business community in Arizona.
The passion and goal behind the festival is bringing Black businesses together statewide. Blax Friday is the largest Black business directory and app in Arizona. Since the summer of 2020, Blax Friday has spotlighted Black businesses throughout Arizona with the goals of representation and economic empowerment. Blax Friday has hosted a Black business market called “Soul Food Wednesdays” that has grown from five vendors to 30! In collaboration with Phoenix and surrounding city partners, BOB Fest could become the largest Black business festival with a goal of 60+ vendors and live musicians. Featured artists include Freddy Jay Music, Samba Southwest, Mo La Flo, Seanloui and Black Caesar. This festival is made possible by supporting sponsors: Vantage West, African American Legacy Fund, The Citizen Hotel, Why I Love Where I Live, Local First Arizona, Chase Bank, and TLGBT Chamber of Commerce.
Visit the MSA Annex and Fairgrounds on Saturday, November 26th from 6pm to 10pm to support local Black Owned Businesses.
