2nd Annual Black Joy Parade and Celebration

On 2.24.19 the 2nd Annual Black Joy Parade takes over the streets of Oakland.

This year’s theme is CROWN YOUR JOY – a commitment to excellence and working together to build an experience that we truly deserve.

In addition to more activities, vendors, food and performances at the festival, we’re excited to announce the new Black Joy Parade ‘Best in Flow’ Award. A committee made up of local Black community members will grant a total of $10k to organizations, individuals and groups who bring the most creativity and joy to the parade procession, so that they can continue to spread joy all year long.

The parade will begin on February 24, 2019, at the corner of 14th St. and Harrison St., Oakland, CA, at 12:30 PM. It will finish at the corner of Broadway and 20th St., and we will be celebrating in the four blocks between there and the corner of 22nd St. and Webster St.

Save the date! Make a plan! And get ready to bring it to the 2019 Black Joy Parade.
