Taste of Soul has returned bigger and better than ever! With a dynamic array of performances and special guests, this event was truly the event of one of the ages. 

“Recently I had the pleasure of  attending Taste of Soul with my fellow colleagues to connect with the community and enjoy the culture, local black-owned restaurants and entertainment. This event truly captured the “taste” of the diverse creativity that exists in CD10 and throughout LA,” said Councilwoman Hutt.

The Taste of Soul is an event for your whole family, because it provides such a wide range of products and services – from food to clothing to housing assistance, educational information and leading music acts. The free daylong event – presented by Bakewell Media and famous for showcasing the best of food, entertainment and shopping in the Southland – offered more than 300 vendors, top recording artists, and the Beer Garden, operated by KBLA and Mothers In Action.  Taste of Soul has grown tremendously since its beginnings in 2005.  Over the years, attendance ballooned to nearly 400,000 people in 2019 traveling from throughout the Southland as well as Nevada and Arizona.

“Thanks to the overwhelming support from our corporate sponsors, community members, small business owners and elected officials, we were able to present a free, first class event for the people of South Los Angeles that includes great fun along with much-needed information to improve our health and finances,” said CEO Danny Blackwell.
