Founded by Commissioner David Rice and coordinated by Keokia Childress, Taste of Inglewood -The Experience, is the premiere annual event to attend by local and regional consumers alike. While we host other events throughout the year, like the backpack drive (last year’s major contributor was LA Lakers’ Jordan Clarkson, who donated 300 backpacks to the children in our community), our ultimate goal with the food and vendor fair is to advance the unity within the ever evolving cultural and social variations of this impending entertainment and sports powerhouse. This is where cultural differences are the core of our strength. “WELCOME TO INGLEWOOD” ; previous years performers who have graced our stage: Big Daddy Kane, Whodini, Kindred Family Soul, Dana Dane, Eric Bellinger, Miki Howard, Michel’le, Casey Veggies, Darius McCray, Lao Tizer and several local acts. In conjunction with our non-profit organization, we are hosting this event for the benefit of the businesses, consumers and children of Inglewood. Our vision is to bring attention to the beautiful city of Inglewood, its resources, businesses, sports and entertainment district.
At this year’s 5th annual celebration, taking place from February 10th-12th, 2022, you can expect BIG. We are sticking to our core principles and vision, while also expanding this free celebration during one of the biggest weekends in the U.S. – Super Bowl Weekend. Not only is this event special for our local community and surrounding cities, but it is especially significant to immerse visitors from all over the country into our community-built culture of Inglewood. With the Rams’ being our local team as one of the competitors in this year’s Super Bowl, and our wonderful SoFi Stadium hosting the game, this will be a historical weekend to celebrate at the Taste of Inglewood. Here are some highlights for this year’s celebration:
