Create the change

the Freedom Festival
Washington, DC

For many years, Juneteenth has been under-recognized and under-celebrated. Juneteenth marks the nation’s second Independence Day and should be a national pride as a significant milestone in American history. We will continue to create the platform for the nation to come together to celebrate Juneteenth and host one of the largest Juneteenth celebrations in America.

About us

The Juneteenth Foundation

Juneteenth Freedom Festival

The annual Freedom Festival is a weekend long celebration starting with the Freedom Reception and ending with the virtual music concert aimed to crown the celebration of Juneteenth.

Juneteenth Day Project

This is a national strategy to reinforce Juneteenth as a federally recognized holiday. We will work to ensure celebration across the entire United States of America is recognized because we believe Juneteenth is an American holiday.

Corporate Engagement

Our target is to create an avenue for Fortune 500 brands to support the celebration of freedom and Black culture in America. It is an opportunity for these brands to think through effective ways they can create for a more inclusive and equitable work environment by the end of 2021.

Freedom Scholarship Awards

Scholarships are awarded to brilliant young Black students attending historically Black Colleges or Universities. Scholarships will be announced at the annual Freedom Reception organized during the week of Juneteenth. The goal is to make this a blueprint for Juneteenth celebration across America.
