Cooperative Economic Empowerment Movement (CEEM) has partnered with the Los Angeles County Fair for its 3rd annual celebration of Black excellence May 13 to 15. Embarking on the fair’s 100-year anniversary, Californians will experience a variety of fun, engaging, and interactive activities focused on heritage and the fair’s centennial origins throughout the month of May.
In light of this year’s theme “Back to Our Roots,” the weekend is dedicated to the achievements of African-American culture and thought leaders paving the way in education, business, entertainment, technology, and beyond.
CEEM’s curated three-day affair includes live entertainment with a surprise headliner slated for each night, panel discussions, kid zones, an art gallery, pop-up booths, a delicious lineup of food by Black-owned businesses, a $5,000 entrepreneur pitch competition, and so much more for children and families to enjoy.
For the past six years, CEEM has been committed to helping African-Americans create long-term generational wealth and investments in African- American-owned ventures.
“I’m super excited that we’re back for the third time at the LA County Fair, especially since it’s our first time back post pandemic,” states CEEM CEO Kyle Webb. “Our goal is to showcase Black excellence at its finest and bring community together. There’s no better way to do this than CEEM at the LA County Fair.”

• Friday, May 13 – A celebration dedicated to the 2022 class of Black graduates across Southern California hosted by the Black Greek Festival.
• Saturday, May 14 – Live entertainment, pop-up experiences, kid zone, pitch contest, live performances with Amber Riley as the headliner.
