The weekend festival will focus on the need to stimulate the local economy of DC and encouraging leadership to empower our communities as the nation lives through and recovers from the effects of COVID-19. Our weekend festival included virtual panel discussions, our Black Greek Fest Festival (socially distanced), opportunities to support local Black-owned businesses, community service tackling homelessness, and more. Black Greek Fest will serve as the premier summer event to strengthen and support the city of DC's culture, Black-owned businesses, and professional growth.

In tandem with fellow Black Greek Letter Organizations (BGLO) members in the D.C. area and the Black Greek Festival Foundation, Black Greek Festival has curated lead-up events as a way to align ourselves with national and local initiatives affecting our community.


Protests Against


Working with organizations such as the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, Howard University Medical School, Howard University School of Law, Howard University Graduate Student Union, and One Route Catering, we organized a protest in June 2020 against police brutality in the African-American community for more than 2,000 Black Greek Letter Organizations (BGLO) members.

Celebration of Our Culture

Black Greek Festival's lead-up events include local community events designed to celebrate Black and Black Greek culture. Black Greek Festival's "poster making" event to supply poster supplies for protestors and activists in the Million Man March, while supporting local Black-owned restaurant, Po Boy Jim's.
