MEET YOUR TOUR GUIDE

MARSHA WILLIS

Thank you for being such a crucial part of BlackBizFest! Let's journey together to become tourists in our own backyard as we explore Kansas City this week, diving into its wealth of black-owned restaurants and shops. Your presence weaves a distinctive thread into our collective experience, and I'm eagerly anticipating the memorable moments we'll create together during BlackBizFest!

  • ​ Empower Local Economies: Support BlackBizFest businesses for direct impact on local black-owned enterprises, fostering economic growth and job creation.
  • ​Celebrate Diversity: Choose diversity and innovation by supporting BlackBizFest businesses, showcasing unique products and enriching the local business scene.
  • ​Build an Inclusive Economy: Invest in a stronger, more inclusive economy by choosing BlackBizFest businesses, promoting diversity, and encouraging entrepreneurship.

Welcome to the KC Black Business Tour, a vibrant celebration of Black-owned establishments across Kansas City! As part of the grand BlackBizFest, we are excited to shine a spotlight on a diverse array of businesses, ranging from delectable Black-owned restaurants and trendy retail outlets to lively bars, beauty salons, and professional services.


During BlackBizFest, businesses have a golden opportunity to showcase their unique and affordable offers by submitting them for promotion on the official BlackBizFest site. Throughout the week-long festivity, we will actively promote these businesses, ensuring that BlackBizFest tourists have an abundance of exciting activities to explore. Moreover, we encourage Kansas City natives to embrace their inner tourists, venturing out to discover new and exciting flavors, products, and services within the city.

Our primary objective is not only to provide a delightful experience for BlackBizFest participants but also to bolster the prosperity of participating Black-owned businesses. By infusing revenue into these establishments, we contribute to the growth and sustainability of the Black business community in Kansas City.

As a testament to our commitment, BlackBizFest will contribute 10% of the registration fee, while businesses participating in the KC Black Business Tour will have the opportunity to generously donate 10% of their earnings. These funds will support two significant organizations—the Black Owned Business Kansas City Foundation Scholarship Fund and another prominent organization or church, to be revealed in due course. This philanthropic endeavor enhances the tour, fostering community support and collaboration, with both BlackBizFest and participating businesses remaining committed to these causes.

Join us in this exciting journey through Kansas City's vibrant Black business landscape during the KC Black Business Tour. Let's celebrate entrepreneurship, diversity, and community while making a positive impact on the local business ecosystem. Together, let's make BlackBizFest an unforgettable experience for both visitors and residents alike!
