Like several other large-scale festivals, Black-owned Broccoli City was forced to postpone its in-person Broccoli City Fest as mandatory safety measures prevented large group gatherings.

Instead of keeping their fan base waiting until 2021, the founders decided to host BroccoliCon digitally on July 8 and 9.

“Despite the current global situation forcing the cancellation of this year’s Broccoli City Fest and BroccoliCon live events, we wanted to provide a safe space for people to have conversations and trade ideas that educate, equip and empower one another to make an impact in our most vulnerable communities,” said Brandon McEachern, co-founder of Broccoli City Festival.

The 2-day event will feature workshops and panels led by successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, storytellers, techies, government officials, and investors covering topics such as wealth and wellness, professional development, financial literacy, and the importance of Black storytelling and controlling our narratives.

BroccoliCon is completely free to anyone who RSVPs via the website: www.broccolicon.com.
