Black Excellence Expo Back for a Second Year in Rochester, Minnesota

The month of February has the focus of Black History Month and back for a 2nd year is an event where you can show your support to minority-owned businesses in our area.  If you've ever been to the Townsquare Media studios to chat with the team at 106.9 KROC, Quick Country 96.5, Y-105FM, or one of our other radio stations, it won't be hard for you to find since it is across the street at the new Discovery Square 2 building.

If you want to support locally minority owned businesses here in Rochester, now is your chance at the Black Excellence Expo on Saturday, Feb. 24. From 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. guests can experience food, arts, fashion, products and services under one roof at Discovery Square 2.
