Indiana Black Expo is a non for-profit organization headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana that is responsible for overseeing the state's two largest cultural events[citation needed]: the Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration, and the Circle City Classic.

The Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration is the largest ethnic–cultural event in the United States. This ten-day event, held in the Indiana Convention Center as well as various places around Indianapolis, draws African Americans to Indianapolis from both around the state and around the country. Organized in 1970, the Black Expo has provided networking, educational, career, and cultural opportunities for its guests. Participation at the 2006 Summer Celebration reached record highs, with over 350,000 in attendance.

Since 1983, Indiana Black Expo has hosted the Circle City Classic, a two-day event held the first weekend in October which includes a parade as well as its main attraction, a college football game held between two historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
