BOLOFest ’24

Get ready for BOLOfest 2024, following the resounding success of BOLOfest 2023! Last year, BOLO (Black Owned London) launched Camden’s largest black-owned market on Lower Stable Street, kicking off Camden’s black history season in style. In collaboration with Argent and Samsung KX, the market attracted over 20,000 attendees across three days, immersing them in the vibrant culture. From soulful music to delicious cuisine, attendees experienced the richness of black-owned businesses. The kids’ area was a hit, featuring face painting, a kids DJ, and even a children’s cinema.

Join us for another unforgettable celebration of black excellence!
