2nd Annual Blackout Weekend (Black Business Expo) - JoJo's Java Lounge (Columbus Ohio)
Let’s Blackout This Holiday Season! Shop Local. Support Black.


Join us as we celebrate another year of celebrating Black Owned Businesses for this holiday season! Last year caught the attention of news stations, legislators, and social media… and they are ready to roll with us again!

Featuring 18 of our local growing moguls daily, food, music, and a bartender, we are excited to make this Christmas count. We are taking it up a notch this year and using our platform for good. Friday, we are honoring our homeless veterans by building kits for the homeless and meals for Giving Tuesday. Saturday, we are collecting commonly requested items for displaced women and children. Sunday, we are collecting toys to adopt 3-5 families this Christmas.

Admission fee is to support all of our Giving Tuesday efforts.
