Join us for Juneteenth!

Planning is underway for Juneteenth 2024. Location will be changing due to construction. Stay tuned for date and new location! 

Juneteenth is a celebration of American history. It marks the day when federal troops arrived in Texas to free all enslaved people, two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Today, we celebrate Juneteenth by not only continuing to fight racism, but also by highlighting Black culture. This is our 3rd year celebrating in Ankeny with black and brown artists, performers, food trucks and all kinds of vendors. We also have a kids area and we welcome everyone to come and celebrate. 

As our nation and local community prioritizes and invests in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, support of this event allows us all to take steps toward racial reconciliation. Participating in this Juneteenth celebration will help to build a bridge of awareness, acknowledgment, and acceptance that is needed both here in our community and across the country.

Thank you to our generous 2023 Juneteenth Gold Sponsors!
