organized children's activities, and, of course, great food.

Saturdaywillbe an afternoon
packed with great entertainment on two stages--Blues, Jazz, gospel, Latin...& more!
The Juneteenth Festival is a family affair. There's lots for kids of all ages--from a face-to-face meeting with the likes
of Abe Lincoln and Harriet Tubman to playing games, painting faces, riding horses, making cards for father's day, listening
to story tellers and taking home a free book.
Father's Day Concert
From the late 1920's into the mid-'50's the June Festival concerts featured African
American performers who had traditionally been excluded by Jim Crow from Music Hall and other mainstream stages.
Father's Day concert is our revival of that tradition. It's a Sunday afternoon in Drake Park packed with inspriational music and dance.
