Vendor Marketplace

Dear Vendor Partner,

Join us for Columbus’ 2017 Citywide Kwanzaa Celebration. Kwanzaa is a weeklong celebration of family, community, and culture. During the week of December 26, 2017 to January 1, 2018, 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 time for celebration of our African American heritage and values. The week provides time to reflect on the seven core principles of Unity, Self-determination, Collective Work & Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity, and Faith.

Will you participate as a Vendor?  Our guests would love the opportunity to support your business.  To participate as a Vendor Partner you have two options.
