Richmond Black Restaurant Experience kicks off Sunday.

Why it matters: The annual, weeklong event celebrates Richmond's thriving Black culinary scene.

  • Plus, there's plenty of great food to eat all week.

Zoom in: One of the things that distinguishes RBRE from other restaurant week events is that it's inclusive of all the players in the food scene, like caterers, food trucks and mobile carts — not just standalone restaurants.

And it all starts Sunday with Mobile Soul Sunday.

  • More than two dozen food trucks and caterers will be at Monroe Park on Sunday from noon-5pm, cooking up their signature dishes for purchase.
  • Plus, there will be live music, vendors, and wine, beer and cocktails for purchase at the family-friendly event. Admission is free.

Then next week be sure to hit up one of the nearly 40 local restaurants serving up American, Southern, Caribbean and African cuisine to show your support for Richmond Black restaurateurs.

Hungry for more? On Friday, March 15, Art for the Soul starts the wind-down for the event, which ends March 17.
