SOKO Place Festival is a free annual one-day festival that aims to:

1) establish an outdoor marketplace uplifting cooperative economics.

2) strengthen the Springfield and Clark County region through arts and culture, and

3) bring residents together to celebrate and patronize local and regional black businesses.
