Chanel Turner is the woman behind Fou-dré Vodka and the Black Owned Wine and Spirits Festival. I still can't believe this is the 4th annual festival! Every year, the BOWSF gets bigger and better, allowing attendees to sample a variety of black-owned alcohol while enjoying live music, Caribbean cuisine, seafood, desserts and more at Dock 5 in Washington D.C.
Along with my early meet-up with Chanel who is my sweetheart, this year, I had the opportunity to speak with other vendors as they shared their BOWSF experience and talk about their brands.
Watch the interviews below and hear from Yolanda Nelson as she describes the full-service event space and lodging accommodations she created just for you and your guests; Gwen Jackson discusses distribution; and Michelle Vessels wants to help you advertise on tv and radio.
