Vendor Marketplace

Secure your vendor space today!

Dear Vendor Partner,

Join us for Columbus’ 2019 Citywide Kwanzaa Celebration. Kwanzaa is a weeklong celebration of family, community, and culture. During the week of December 26, 2019, to January 1, 2020, there will be a multitude of personal development activities held across Columbus that honor elders, uplift adults, and promote youth.

Kwanzaa is not a religious holiday, but instead is time for celebration of our African American heritage and values. The week provides time to reflect on the seven core principles of the NGUZO SABA: Unity, Self-determination, Collective Work & Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity, and Faith.
