Special Event



Join us for a free daylong festival to celebrate true independence with live music, programming, community vendors and food trucks for a jubilant takeover of Freedom Way. Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Orlando Brown, Jr. will be the event’s featured guest, delivering a motivational speech followed by a photo and autograph session.

The inaugural Juneteenth Jubilee is reminiscent of the joy and community that were the hallmarks of the earliest Juneteenth celebrations, bringing people together around music, food and community. The event will feature a stage on the Freedom Center plaza, with live music and performances. Minority- and woman-owned food trucks will bookend Freedom Way, serving barbecue, Tex Mex, classic cookout favorites and more. And a Community Market featuring local small businesses will give guests an opportunity to shop and support local.

The Juneteenth Jubilee will culminate in a march down the banks to the Ohio River, the symbolic River Jordan over which thousands of enslaved people crossed into freedom on the Underground Railroad.

Programming and activities during the day will also focus on health equity, economic empowerment and voter education and engagement.
