I’m a vendor at Black Joy Parade 5


If you’re in Cali this weekend come to the 5th annual “Black Joy Parade”! There will be an actual parade (12-1:30pm) with dancers, floats, a kids zone, 2 performance stages, games, lounges, and more. The live performances will be by Oakland’s very own Ryan Nicole, DC is Chillin, and the headliner Ashanti. There will be food, an official BJP brunch, and vendors. And I’ll be one of them at booth 209. Check the map to see where I’m at on Franklin btwn 21st and 20th st in downtown Oakland. The festival runs from 12-7pm.

Black Joy Parade VIRTUAL marketplace


Hey i’m excited to share with you the first virtual market I will be a part of this year. The Black Joy Parade!! Last year I attended the in person festival for the 2nd time in downtown Oakland which probably had over 10K people. That would be the second time there as a visitor and my first time there as a vendor. It was great, I met tons of folks. And it was the only real in person event I got to vend at last year. This year with restrictions in place and nearly half a million people who have died as a result of the virus in the US its going online. 
Please check out my shop as always, but also check out some of the other vendors!! Read their descriptions and click on their links. Its free to look 🙂

Always with great branding and design, here’s the post from last year.

Black Joy Parade 2020- Vendor!

Yo, what up. So this is the third annual Black Joy Parade. I missed the first one bit heard it was dope. I went last year to check it out and was amazed to see Black folks from so many places and walks of life. I’m talking about the righteous, the hood, the bougie, the spiritual, the creative, and so many more. 
What is it? It is a huge parade showing happiness and a day of performance, food, and vendors. Case in point, I will be a vendor there this year for the first time (Books, prints, artwork, and more). Come holler at me or tell your folks I’ll be there. See you soon. Peep this video from last year by Town futurist!
