Daptoberfest (formerly Blacktoberfest) 2023 to highlight Black-owned businesses in Indianapolis

More by this author

Daptoberfest, formerly known as Blacktoberfest, is an event designed to highlight Black-owned businesses and give platforms to those who may not have the luxury of a brick-and-mortar establishment, website or supply chain operation. It is also an event for Black business owners to network with each other and connect with the Indianapolis community free of charge.

This year’s Daptoberfest is happening at the Edna Martin Christian Center, located at 2259 N. Ralston Ave. The event takes place on Oct. 14 from 4-10 p.m. Many vendors will be in attendance, including award-winning food vendors Good Vegan/Bad Vegan, Later Taters, Chef Oya’s the TRAP, T-Days Jerk and many others. The event will also feature live music and a variety of Black-owned business vendors.  

Daptoberfest is hosted by Don’t Sleep Indy, a nonprofit organization that focuses on deconstructing oppression now through solidarity, liberation, empowerment, equity and perseverance. Don’t Sleep Indy is committed to supporting Black-owned businesses and the Black community in Indianapolis.

Daptoberfest provides a platform for Black businesses that may not have the same access to loans, capital and other resources. The event helps to level the playing field and give Black businesses a chance to showcase their products and services.

For those interested in getting involved with Daptoberfest, there are a few things you can do: attend the event; support Black-owned businesses by patronizing them throughout the year; donate to Don’t Sleep Indy to help them continue their impactful work in the Indianapolis community.
