Why Attend Juneteenth Freedom Fest?
Celebrating Juneteenth in Charleston, South Carolina as a large-scale event is significant to our heritage and who we are as a people. Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day, or Juneteenth Independence Day, is a holiday commemorating the end of legal chattel enslavement in the United States. We will celebrate Juneteenth on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at the Riverfront Park in North Charleston, SC.
Juneteenth Freedom Fest Charleston is free to the public with an anticipated 3000 guests in attendance. The event will last all day kicking off at 2 pm and ending at 10 pm with a Grand Fireworks Show Finale! Live Performances, Black Art, Music, Food, and Kids Activities are sure to make this event a fun filled day
1st Annual Juneteenth Freedom Fest Charleston is a community-based event aiming to create a celebration of our progress towards freedom and a platform to educate our people about the accomplishments and the lessons learned as we continue our protracted struggle to freedom for all people of African (Afrikan) descent.
