Umoja Events is a digital event production company and wrap-around event services. Although, we have a focus on balloon decor. We host a flagship event annually, our Juneteenth NYC Summit. It 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 are a family-run business and have been in business since 2009. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and a fun-loving spirit. All of the events we assist with bring people together. In turn, this is why we named our business Umoja, which is UNITY in Swahili. We are also a female-owned and operated company.
