Florida Black Excellence Festival

Empowering the African-American Community for Success in a Changing World!

“New Face, New Place, and a New Standard “Excellence” is the new theme for the upcoming 2024 Florida Black Excellence Festival. This event marks the 20th year that an event like this one has been a part of the Jacksonville community.  As a result, the Pollock Group is celebrating this great occasion by introducing a new branding, logo, venue and theme.  But not everything will be changing. 


The Festival will still offer participants engagement activations, educational workshops and entertainment along with over 400 retail vendors, corporate entities, community and governmental agencies in a creative, high energy setting.  Other activities will include the The FBX Taste of Excellence, The FBX Top 20 Under 40  and Much, Much More! 


In a time when small businesses are ready to scale up and employers are finding workforce fulfillment almost impossible, the Florida Black Excellence Festival will be the definitive method for providing significant economic impact and empowerment to over 10,000 attendees and the entire Jacksonville community and surrounding counties.
