Everyone is Invited!

Get ready for a Spring and Summer of excitement, opportunity and fun. Join us at we present our two big events of the Spring and Summer. The 20th Annual Black Expo Spring Festival Oak Park Street Fest on Saturday May 11, 2019 featuring the Urban Music Fest and our annual Mother's Day Tribute Concert; and the very popular Sacramento Seafood Festival at Miller Park ion July 6, 2019. Both events are very well attended and received by the audience. In fact, both events exceeded expectations last year so much that we have to add more space on the streets and in the park this year. You are invited to participate as an exhibitor (see attached forms) and we have special rates for our continuing participants. So please give me a call at 916 477-0157 now so you will not be left out.
