Beyond Juneteenth Egungun Festival

June 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Juneteenth, a portmanteau of June and nineteenth, is also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day, and Emancipation Day. It is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved or bonded in the United States, our Ancestors, our Egungun.

Join us for the Beyond Juneteenth festival, titled “Beyond” to recognize Juneteenth as the oldest celebration commemorating the freedom of enslaved people in the United States, while also acknowledging the ancestral legacy we have yet to grow into.

Learn, connect, and be empowered as we start the day with a Juneteenth Flag Raising ceremony, live performances From Sa-roc and Sol Messiahh, Richard Raw, Jea Street Jr and Nadja Nicole, Nitro Nitra, Jahiti, Ghetto Songbird, Ebony Zuudia, Hezekiah, Stiggz Stigalo, Tonantzin Yaotecas, ILE IGO KE, Egungun Oloba. Enjoy offerings from  Drop Squad Kitchen, food trucks, arts and craft vendors.
