2023 Cincinnati Black Family Reunion

The 2023 Cincinnati Black Family Reunion is a four-day celebration. It includes consumers, corporations, and communities focusing on the historic strengths and values of the Black Family. Cincinnati is the only city that continues this tradition of honoring Black families.

This, the 35th Annual Cincinnati Black Family Reunion Celebration, features a weekend full of free family-focused events. This includes a job fair, a parade, concerts, and opportunities to support local Black-owned businesses.

The Black Family Reunion will return to Cincinnati this summer for its 35th year.

The long-running event’s Executive Director Tracey Artis says the annual celebration has been able to outlast similar events in other cities because of a combined effort from businesses, local government and the Black community itself.

“Thirty-five years ago, 26 cities had the Black Family Reunion. We’re one of the only original groups left. Rockford, Illinois, has a Black Family Reunion and Atlanta is bringing theirs back,” Artis said.

From the parade through Avondale to Sunday Service and the luncheon on Fountain Square, Cincinnati’s Black Family Reunion is one of Cincinnati’s largest family-focused events.

“The Black Family Reunion is pivotal. It’s a place for us to be able to celebrate the origins of the family, to lift up the great things that we are doing and an opportunity for us to build community and community amongst each other,” Cincinnati city manager Sheryl Long said.

The four-day event brings consumers, corporations and communities together to focus on the historic strengths and values of the Black family.
