Juneteenth by It Takes a Village creates a unique, annual event space to celebrate the Black community and learn about the Black experience while sharing in the diversity of culture that makes up our neighborhoods, connecting people to services and resources they need to live their best lives while enjoying a day spent in and with community, sharing food, ideas, goods, and more.
Our Juneteenth event promotes community health and empowerment of those with the least power in our society. We do this by bringing people together in a safe and welcoming space to share food, enjoy the talents of local artists, craftspeople, and more, and by giving people opportunities to connect to local services relevant to their wellbeing. We provide in-depth education on the history of Juneteenth and encourage all event attendees to share knowledge, perspective, and ideas and make valuable connections while enjoying this joyful and educational community event.
The event will feature…
Food | Music | A History Lesson | Vendors | Community Services Booths
… and more!
This event supports community entrepreneurship of BIPOC, women, WOC, LGBTQIA+ and generally promotes equity in small and large business endeavors of folks from all communities regardless of race/ethnicity, culture, economic status, etc. Our vendors, artists/performers, and those tabling the event, as well as our volunteer staff and leadership board will be made up of folks who live and work in community.
We hope to see you (and the whole family) on June 19!
