The Black Family Reunion Celebration is one of Cincinnati's largest family-focused events. This 3-day fun-filled weekend event brings consumers, corporations, and communities together to focus on the historic strengths and values of the Black Family. Bring your families and friends and make this a reunion to remember!

We appreciate the thousands of people who attend, volunteer and support our annual celebration. This year marks our 31st year, and our 2019 theme — appropriate as ever — is “ Embracing Our Excellence.” Our BFR nonprofit celebration is an empowering three-day cultural event that brings families, non-profit organizations, businesses, and the community together to focus on the historic strengths and values of the Black Family. The event was inaugurated in 1989 here in Cincinnati and it has grown to be one of the city’s largest family-focused events — typically drawing over 15,000 visitors from our region and throughout the nation.
