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 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 2020, Blax Friday has hosted a Black business market called “Soul Food Wednesdays” that has grown from five vendors to 50! In collaboration with Phoenix and surrounding cities, BOB Fest is the largest Black business festival with 50+ vendors and live musicians.
KXCI and Blax Friday would like to give a special shoutout to our friends at Fairplay for joining us in supporting this event. Fairplay is a coalition committed to ending systemic racism and building frameworks of access, advocacy and support for BIPOC voices in the music industry.
