It's been far too long since we've celebrated our Black-Owned tourism businesses in Hendricks County. We're taking this opportunity to step into the conversation to support racial diversity. 

We want to be part of the resources available in our county for residents and visitors. You can find additional resources and learn more about how you can become involved at the Hendricks County Alliance for Diversity

To help the community support Black-Owned businesses, we have created a list of restaurants, stores, things to do, wedding and meeting vendors and more in Avon, Brownsburg, Danville and Plainfield. We will continue to update this list as we receive additional information.
