Middletown's 1st Annual Juneteenth Cookout ❤💚💛

 Over the past few years dealing with racial injustice issues with police and African Americans, there has been a sense of urgency among all races to celebrate and honor "Freedom Day", "Jubilee Day", "Liberation Day" or "Emancipation Day".

 Juneteenth is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States. It commemorated on the anniversary date of June 19, 1865. More than 150 years of celebrations and Middletown, Ohio recently joined the celebration! Our organization teamed up with a young lady who had an idea that quickly turned into a huge community celebration in honor of freedom. 

On June 19th from 12pm-7pm behind the "Robert Sonny Hill" Community Center. The community can come celebrate in 90's attire, there will be free food provided for the children, a bouncy house, music and over 23 confirmed vendors. 


Our free store program will be giving away over 200 products intended for self care needs.



Check out the fabulous businesses below that will be in attendance!
