Juneteenth Celebration!

June 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The 2022 Juneteenth celebration takes place at Newton North High School. Historic Newton is collaborating with the New Arts Center for a public reading of Frederick Douglass’ 1852 speech about the meaning of July 4. Also learn more about the history of Juneteenth at the event.

Remember how amazing last year’s Juneteenth event was? (Check out photos here if you missed it)

This year, Juneteenth celebrations hosted by FORJ NNHS will be at the Walnut Street side of Newton North High School. Vendors including Black-owned businesses, food trucks, performers, DJs, kids’ activities, and art exhibits will make this a fantastic family day out (it’s also Father’s Day!), so please put this date in your calendars now.

  • Want to participate as a vendor, performer, artist, or in any other capacity? Click here to sign up.

  • Want to help out? Volunteers are urgently needed to help with all aspects during the day itself. Click here to sign up to help out.

  • We are also looking for sponsors. Click here to sign up as a sponsor (or here to donate directly by PayPal or card) and help us make this community event even bigger and better than it was last year!
