Organized by Long Beach Food & Beverage, a registered California 501(c)3 non-profit, the 2nd annual Long Beach Black Restaurant Week is an 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 online 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.
