Akron Juneteenth Festival 2021

56764171_1622325797524856_r.jpegThis year we are celebrating Akron, Ohio's 18th annual Juneteenth Celebration at Stone/Hawkins Park.

This a non profit community event highlighting black culture and community unity.  Local business, families, and community leaders are coming together to give back to our local community and children.

There will be a High School talent show with a cash prize/scholarship. A car parade with national flags. Free food and activities for children. And an open mic for an open community conversation.

Your donations will help us: provide a hefty cash prize for these young aspiring artists, fund the building of a stage, provide free fun and food for children, create advertisement, and aide sanitation and security for this large event!

Large donations will be featured in our memorial Juneteenth pamphlet that will be distributed at the event.

To ensure things are in order in a timely fashion, we ask that donations are made in the month of May so we can designate funds a few weeks before the event.

We need all the help we can get, and it will go towards inspiring and teaching our youth.

Thank you for your consideration and support. We hope to see you there!
