Join us for Juneteenth!

Saturday, June 17, 4-10 pm at the District at Prairie Trail, Ankeny!

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, and we are expanding after a wonderful turnout at last year’s event. 

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.

Event Sponsorships are vital to bringing this event to our community.  To get involved, please email
