Juneteenth Freedom Festival

Juneteenth Freedom Festival

Come celebrate culture and community at the Fourth Annual Juneteenth Freedom Festival on Saturday, June 15, from 1:00-7:00 p.m.

Celebrating the anniversary of the freedom granted to enslaved African Americans, Freedom Fest centers around music, food, and celebrating black culture. The entire community is invited to help create a space of belonging for BIPOC residents, visitors, students/families, and businesses. We will also provide space for non-profit organizations with anti-racist or DEIA-focused missions. 

If you want to volunteer at the event, please complete this form.

Join us for the Juneteenth Freedom Fest:

  • A Pop-up Marketplace: featuring BIPOC vendors and organizations with anti-racist or DEIA-focused missions.
  • Food and Beverages: including beer, non-alcoholic, Halal, and/or culturally black cuisine options.
  • Live musical performances and DJ

 This event is sponsored by the Office of Equity and Social Justice, the Town of Reading, and the Reading Public Library.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Reading Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
