NDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Black Expo says it has canceled its Summer Celebration and its Circle City Classic football game this year because of the coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19.

The Summer Celebration, which draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to Indianapolis, would have marked its 50th anniversary in July.

Some of the artists set to perform at the event were Keith Sweat, Stephanie Mills, Johnny Gill, and El Debarge.

Organizers say they are still hoping to hold some portions of the summer event in a virtual format.

The Circle City Classic is an annual football game played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis featuring two historically black colleges.
