CADO (kaah-doh) is a bi-annual experiential marketplace for goods, ideas and culture. CADO highlights the Philadelphia region’s Black artists, small businesses, and makers at a place with a rich Black history.

Curated by Debora Charmelus, this Black-centered market serves as an incubator and allows creatives from across the region to meet, support, and discover Black-owned or led brands. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to a charitable organization. For more information, visit www.cadomarketplace.com.

Black Art Fair & Makers Market will take place on February 19, 2023, at Underground Concepts in the Divine Lorraine, the first desegregated hotel in the country.
