Freedom Fest to celebrate Juneteenth
Commemorates the ending of slavery on June 19, 1865
This year, residents and visitors are invited to come together and celebrate Juneteenth at Cleveland’s first annual Freedom Fest. Presented in collaboration by Karamu House, Downtown Cleveland Alliance (DCA) and Ingenuity Cleveland, the free, community-driven, family-friendly destination event is set to take place on Saturday, June 19, 2021 in the heart of Downtown Cleveland.
Freedom Fest will feature live music and entertainment from Karamu House and other talented performers, interactive art demonstrations, and a pop-up vendor village to spotlight Black businesses and entrepreneurs. Festivities will also include an Elders Corner, complete with family-friendly activities such as board games and children’s books, food trucks, beverage concessions and more!
The celebration continues into the evening with main stage entertainment. To top off the event, a soon-to-be-announced marquee performance will bring everyone together to commemorate the ending of slavery. Fireworks will follow at 10 pm.
