FREEDOM FESTIVAL

Greetings from the Flint Freedom Festival Committee,

 

We are excited to be celebrating Flint’s 2nd Annual Freedom Festival & Parade. The 2019 celebration will take place on June 14 and 15.  The Freedom Festival is a celebration of great historical significance. Juneteenth is the oldest African American holiday; the celebration was first recognized on June 19, 1865. Juneteenth represents the joy of freedom and new beginnings. Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States by celebrating the joys of liberty, educating the community about our heritage and by promoting positive cultural interaction. Our 2019 Celebration theme is: “Road to Recovery”
