The Annual Juneteenth Community Festival is a community event celebrating the collective efforts of our community, more specifically African Americans, who contribute their talents to improve the local quality of life. This event is a display of commitment to multiculturalism and serves as an outlet to learn about American history, reflect on progression and serve as a reminder to remain committed to social harmony.
