#BCWeek

Broccoli Conference

#BroccoliCon will attract some of the brightest minds from diverse disciplines and backgrounds to generate new ideas, sharpen existing ones, stimulate networks, and arm people with tools that will positively affect our culture and communities. We are focused on improving diversity in Tech, Entrepreneurship, Social Impact and Creative Industries through a series of interactive programs including panels, professional development workshops, skill building activities, and exclusive networking receptions.

Broccoli City 5K Run & Fitness

Broccoli City’s annual fitness event will be hosted at Anacostia Park the morning before the festival to provide an opportunity to be physically active before a full day of fun. Following the run, fitness experts from across the country will lead workout activations and share tips on healthy living.

We take physical activity seriously. Research shows that when people participate in physical activities, they feel better therefore they do better. That’s good news for their bodies, and their minds.
