The 36th Annual Black Family Reunion

The 36th Annual Black Family Reunion celebration will take place in Cincinnati, Ohio, from August 15-18, 2024. This four-day event celebrates the historic strengths and values of the Black family and features free events such as a job fair, parade, concerts, and opportunities to support local Black-owned businesses. The celebration occurs at various locations around Cincinnati, including Fountain Square, Corinthian Baptist Church, Avondale, and Sawyer Point.

Originally conceived in 1988 by Dr. Dorothy I. Height, President Emerita of the National Council of Negro Women, the Black Family Reunion showcases the enduring values of the Black family. It remains the only event of its kind in the country after similar events in 25 other cities ended. The celebration aims to strengthen Black families and empower the community. It is one of Cincinnati’s largest family-focused events, drawing approximately 10,000 patrons each year.
