41st Annual Black History Parade & Expo

The Black History Parade & Expo is an annual community event that celebrates Black History Month. The parade showcases various local organizations, bands, step teams, churches, community leaders, etc. The expo showcases craft vendors, food vendors, children’s activities and an entertainment stage.

2020 is a prominent year. Not just because it is a new decade and that it’s election year, but it’s the 150th anniversary of the right to vote for Blacks. The 41st Annual Black History Parade and Expo will be paying homage to this anniversary, the theme for this year’s event, “It Takes A Village: Let’s Vote”.

For the past 41 years the Riverside Black History Parade has played an instrumental role in bringing the community, schools and local businesses together.
