Juneteenth commemorates when the last enslaved people of America had their freedom reinstated. The festival began in Galveston,Texas 1865. It was made a federal holiday in 2021. This year is only our 12th annual celebration. Juneteenth Detroit Festival honors that past, by appreciating today, and celebrating what's to come.
We are a grassroots organization. We believe in community unity. Our goal is to highlight the talents and products Metro Detroit residents have to offer one another. We are expecting 3000 households to attend this year's festival.
We are networking for vendors and sponsors. We Believe 12 years of consistent community organization is definitely worth having your brand or business as a partner.
"You may not need Juneteenth but Juneteenth needs you."
