Lynnwood, WA – Project Girl Mentoring is excited to announce the upcoming Juneteenth Freedom Day Celebration on Wednesday, June 19th, 2024. The event will be held from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Cedar Valley Community School Gym & Playfields.

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. It marks the day on June 19th, 1865, when the last enslaved African Americans in Texas were informed of their freedom, over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln.

Event Highlights:

  • Opening Ceremony: The celebration will kick off at 10:00 AM with an opening ceremony featuring speeches from local leaders and community members.

  • Live Performances: Enjoy live music, dance performances, and spoken word poetry that honor African American culture and history.

  • Health Fair: Take advantage of health screenings, wellness information, fitness demonstrations, and resources to support a healthy lifestyle. Local healthcare providers and wellness experts will be on hand to offer valuable insights and services.

  • Family Activities: There will be a variety of activities for families and children, including face painting, games, and arts and crafts.

  • Food and Vendors: Savor delicious food from local vendors and explore booths offering various products and services.

 

We are now accepting booth applications from those who wish to participate in an event and help provide our community with a fun, family celebration.
