Fresno Vibe is back and better than ever!

After a 2-year hiatus, due to health and other pressing factors,  Adrian Harris founder of Fresno Vibes is making his return. Mr. Harris has been known for his outstanding work in bringing change and entertainment to the beautiful city of Fresno, California.  With a new outlook and perception on Life, Mr. Harris is ready to finish what he started.


Born and raised in Houston, a city flourishing with a thriving nightlife and people that hustle to make things happen, it was evident to him that Fresno was missing something and he was determined to be that missing piece to the puzzle that Fresno desperately needed. 

At its highest peak in 2019, before covid, Fresno Vibe was a Trendsetter in the community. Serving as a space for aspiring entrepreneurs, millennial game changers or simply those who wanted to be involved and didn't know where to start. Harris' began hosting professional business mixers, and genuine spaces for real leaders and people to connect. He changed the game, from grown and sexy club events, a magazine publication, food festivals, business consulting and community advocacy, and award shows, he ultimately became that missing piece that Fresno needed. . 



So, what happened to the Vibe? What happened to Adrian Vibe Harris, the man with a plan, carrying the weight of the city on his shoulders? Why the 2 year hiatus, disappearing from the scene he worked so hard to build?

Adrian was determined and worked assiduously to build his legacy, executing multiple festivals, award and community events, he was eager to level up current business owners, helping to build up aspiring entrepreneurs, and create a platform for anyone to obtain the American dream in becoming a boss in their own right.  Working hours on end and carrying this weight on his shoulders came with a price. The stress of being a sole organizer without an established team, the backlash and ridicule from those hating the monumental strides he was accomplishing, not to mention the addiction to the rush he received from working under pressure, executing events, festivals and his Black Magical Women awards back-to-back. He loved the thrill, it gave him a rush.  The end result was satisfying, yet temporary, leaving Mr. Harris with a greater desire to take his own ventures to the next level and help more individuals.  All these factors ultimately took a toll on his life, his health declined resulting in him having multiple hospitalizations and an urgent need to put his health first.  If it was not for the pandemic,  Adrian would have continued to press forward, pushing himself at any cost.


Adrian was forced to take time, much needed self-reflection and to get his house and health in order.  Taking care of himself first, helping himself first, ensuring that his foundation is unbreakable, before being able to fully help the city and others.

“You cannot save others from drowning, without first saving yourself. Only then will you be able to throw them a lifeline and pull them to the surface.”

                                                                         -Adrian Harris 

While interviewing Adrian he said “With God first, myself, my family, business, and community in that order, my foundation is solid.  By pouring into myself, I have been able to be a better partner, build better relationships with my children and others. I wasn’t able to see things clear, until God walked with me through the valley to get me to the top of the mountain. I have arrived at the top and I can see things clearly and with a better perspective.”

“Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared.”


At this point you’re probably wondering, what now, what’s next?  What can we expect for Adrian Vibe Harris to bring to the table? Man!? Was all that time he took for self-reflection useful or even worth it? Did he regroup and change things up for something greater?  

Let me be the first to tell you, I definitely can attest to this!  The Vibe is back! Bigger and greater than ever before without a doubt.  Adrian never lost sight of his dream, he found life sustaining fresh air, learned how to breath it in and rose through it all.  He has made a subtle return by;
