Celebrating the 5th anniversary of Black August in the Park
Black August in the Park is space designed specifically for Black people to create joy, connect and heal. We honor the legacy of the Black August and bring it into a contemporary context that grants all black people access to its themes.
Black August in the Park features food from Black food vendors, Black music from Black DJ's and Installations from Black lead social justice organizations. Our desire is to use Black joy as a freedom tool in and of itself but also as a way to introduce ALL black folks to groups leading Black liberation movement work.
Black August in the Park is like a homecoming or family reunion. ALL Black people are welcome! Come home to Black August in the Park
Black August in the Park is a free event, but we do ask attendees to register before the event. This helps us to plan appropriately for the event.
We need dedicated Black folks to volunteer for Black August in the Park. Our volunteers are the backbone of our events, greeting atteendees, selling merch and helping keep the park safe and clean! Sign up to learn about the perks of volunteering with us!
Black August in the Park provides opportunities for black owned food vendors to access our audience. it is our hope that vending at BAP gives you new longterm customers, and helps to increase your financial viability.
Our donors and monthly sustainers help make all of our events possible. We encourage everyone who believes in our work to consider becoming a sustainer!
