Big Events. Big Impact.

Indiana Black Expo hosts the state’s two largest cultural events: Summer Celebration and Circle City Classic. These events not only provide entertainment, education, and access to resources for the Indiana community but also support the year-round programming to propel the future of today’s youth and families.


Summer Celebration is the largest ethnic–cultural event in the United States. Providing networking, educational, career, and cultural opportunities for its guests, the ten-day event, held in the Indiana Convention Center and surrounding venues draws hundreds of thousands of attendees to Indianapolis from around the state and across the country.
