The BOTS festival is a platform for entrepreneurs showcasing approx. 80% black vendors  and 20 % other. We aim to use our platform to support our Black, African and Caribbean community businesses with an unparalleled opportunity to showcase their goods to both the community AND to other festivals and events that occur throughout the summer.
