Juneteenth Celebration

Jun 19, 2021

1:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Winter Haven’s African American community is full of pride, tradition, and achievement. This year, and for years to come, the City will be honoring this community through scholarships, education, and family-friendly activities at our Juneteenth Celebration! This festival will celebrate the rich history of African Americans within Winter Haven and provide that very community with the recognition and investment that it deserves through the office of special events.

The City of Winter Haven’s Juneteenth Celebration

Attendees can look forward to historical reflections, spoken word performances, a battle of the bands, Family Feud: HBCU edition, and an electrifying performance from Winter Haven’s own @GritzandJellyButter Band!

Kids of all ages can participate in the kid fitness challenge hosted by Andre Berto. With signed permission from a parent or guardian, kids will have the opportunity to flex their physical fitness by participating in a completion-based obstacle course designed to challenge speed, strength, agility, and overall physical fitness.

This open-air festival will feature live entertainment, vendors and local businesses, recreational activities, an educational commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States, and so much more.

Please reach out to The City of Winter Haven’s Parks, Recreation, & Culture Department for more information.
