THE DETAILS

Organized by Long Beach Food & Beverage, a registered California 501(c)3 non-profit, the 2nd annual Long Beach Black Restaurant Week is eight day event devoted to celebrating African, African American and Caribbean fare in and around Long Beach. The event also seeks to highlight Black-owned culinary businesses as well as Black chefs and bartenders.

As opposed to a “festival”, our goal is to put “butts in seats” of participating restaurants, encourage foodies to follow and support food trucks, and order on-line from home-based and cottage businesses.

Long Beach Black Restaurant Week is a medium to bring everyone to the table, from all walks of life, to showcase the city’s diverse Black food scene.

Restaurants, Food Trucks, Caterers, Bakeries, Pop-ups and Retail Food Businesses are welcome to participate.
