Newton Juneteenth Celebration 2024

June 15 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Juneteenth Celebration Steering Committee, who plan and oversee Newton’s Juneteenth Celebration on behalf of FORJ, invites visitors to join us for this free, annual family event! This Celebration marks the national holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved Americans and invites all residents and visitors to celebrate African-American heritage and culture through food, music, dance, and story-telling. Our partners include the Newton Coalition of Black Residents and FORJ NNHS.

This year we feature the historic Myrtle Baptist Church to honor their 150 Year Anniversary. That’s a huge milestone and one that deserves recognition, especially as it coincides with Newton’s 150 Year Anniversary. The Myrtle Baptist Church Choir will take center stage for a headline performance. Come out and enjoy the award-winning food trucks of Gourmet Kreyol and Zaz, interactive children’s programming by Story Starters and Wee The People, free face painting, African drumming, dance party and shopping local black owned business and craft vendors!
