Umoja Events is a digital event production company and wrap-around event services with a focus on balloon decor. We host a flagship event annually, our Juneteenth NYC Summit that is a staple for Black Parent Entrepreneurs to increase growth through masterminds, book discussions, blogs, presentations and monthly learning labs.

Our Mission is to make your event a whimsical masterpiece. We have been in business since 2009. We are a family-run business and pride ourselves on great customer service and a fun-loving spirit. All of the events we do bring people together hence why we named our business Umoja which is UNITY in Swahili. We are a female-owned and operated company.
