Celebrate and support Black Business Month all year long.

The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau recognizes the importance and impact Miami’s black-owned businesses have in our community. August is Black Business Month and we are proud to host a variety of events, seminars, and more to support and celebrate Black Businesses. This includes showcasing black-owned restaurants participating in our Miami Spice program, partnering with Miami-Dade County’s Support BOB 305 initiative, and hosting workshops with our Tourism Business Enhancement Program to help small businesses thrive.

In celebration of Black Business Month in August, we’ve rounded up Greater Miami & Miami Beach’s Black-owned businesses across various industries including arts & culture, attractions, restaurants, shops, beauty, event planning, lodging, business services and more.

Historian John William Templeton and engineer Frederick E. Jordan Sr. created Black Business Month in August 2004 to honor and promote the initiatives of Black-owned businesses throughout the Unites States.

Supporting Miami’s Black-owned businesses doesn’t need to be limited to Black Business Month. Consider showing your support year-round by buying from Black-owned businesses, posting about your favorite Miami Black-owned companies on social media, and sharing your experiences and recommendations with your friends and loved ones.

Local Black-owned businesses play a vital role in making Miami the destination we know and love – and supporting these companies and organizations can help bridge the economic gaps that are embedded within our society.
