The twenty-fourth Annual Juneteenth Celebration will be held on Saturday, June 15, 2013 at Penn Park. The Celebration will kick off at 10:00 a.m. with the Annual Parade, which starts in the Fountain of Life Family Worship Center’s parking lot located at 633 West Badger Road and going down Badger Rd. to Park St and ending at Penn Park. This year’s theme is: “Juneteenth 2013…Remember, Embrace and Shape Our Future.” Juneteenth is a wonderful opportunity to experience the rich history of African Americans through various forms–entertainment, lectures, visual presentation, food and other activities. Juneteenth provides the opportunity for your group or agency to reach a significant portion of Madison’s African American community. Our many partnerships have increased the Celebration’s ability to draw a wider audience from across Dane County.
