(Columbia, SC) – Mark your calendars! The 2nd Annual Black Eats Week 803 will be held on June 17-23, 2024, as part of the Juneteenth celebration week, recognizing the rich culinary heritage of Black-owned restaurants, food trucks, bakeries, creameries, and more in the Midlands area.

Established in 2023, Black Eats Week 803 (BEW803) aims to highlight and support Black entrepreneurs in the food industry, providing a platform that creates awareness and allows diners the opportunity to discover new favorites while supporting their local community.  The event will feature special menus and promotions at participating businesses, as well as community events and activities.

“We are excited to bring Black Eats Week 803 back to the Midlands area this year to spotlight black-owned food establishments. Last year, over 2,500 people were served at the participating restaurants,” said Khali Gallman, event organizer. “Many of those customers had never patronized those establishments prior to BEW803. That is why this event is so important. It creates awareness, stimulates the local economy, and most importantly, reveals some great food! Mark your calendars as this year will be bigger and better.”

Registration is now open for businesses to participate. Black Eats Week 803 is open to restaurants, food trucks, bakeries, creameries, and any other food-related businesses owned by Black entrepreneurs.

Rebel Dogs, an amazing hot dog restaurant, located in the heart of the Vista, and a returning favorite, Annie B’s Mini Donuts have pre-registered.

Details of the week will be exclusively offered on the FREE Soda City Certified app and the Black Eats Week 803 website. Follow on Facebook/Instagram @BlackEatsWeek803 for the latest updates. Sponsors will have the opportunity to showcase their support for the community and diversity and inclusion initiatives, while gaining exposure to attract new customers. Interested businesses and sponsors are encouraged to visit our website at www.blackeatsweek803.com or call 803.922.5310 for more information and to sign up.
