CNYS Black Expo

November 19, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join Underground Railroad Education Center at the CNYS Black Expo to be held at the MVP Arena on Saturday, November 19 from 11am-3pm. Support UREC and other local Black businesses. Remember that the holidays are coming.


The mission of the Capital of New York State Black Expo is to promote economic growth and business opportunities across New York State. We are pleased to announce that we are making a return to service the community after having to postpone due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CNYS Black Expo will provide attendees with health awareness information to support healthy living, along with providing small businesses with an opportunity to access a broad range of potential customers as well as the local community. Many local small businesses and community-based nonprofits lack opportunities to network effectively with similar entities within New York State .

These opportunities are more important than ever due to the fact that our targeted communities were impacted the most by Covid19 in the health and business space.

We are excited to return this year and provide a forum to build relationships and exchange information to support small businesses and encouraging health services collaborations.

The CNYS Black Expo inspires cultural and local pride via exhibits, workshops, presentations, and performances by youth, changemakers, and positive figures from the Capital District and beyond.
