With more than 2,000 already registered to attend, this year’s Juneteenth NYC aims to unite and empower youth in the East Brooklyn community with a dynamic celebration featuring a community talent show, exhibitors, health and wellness screeners on Saturday, June 17th. Umoja Events has a full day roster of entertainment, including performances by DJ Annie Red, Success Academy Prospect Heights Dance Team, Leaders of Tomorrow Step Team, New Explorers Step Team, New Wave Dance Youth and Community Development, Queen Diva and a Magic Show. Confirmed speakers include NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, Councilmember Inez Barron and Assembly Member Charles Barron.
The festival event will feature an interactive education marketplace that offers resources and support programs for youth entrepreneurship, self-help, goal setting and planning for the future. In keeping with the Juneteenth tradition of promoting unity and building self-esteem through reflection, education and through acknowledgement of achievements, several youth will be honored with awards for their service in their communities.
In addition, attendees will enjoy shopping in the vendor marketplace, raffles and family-friendly activations like the bouncy castle, NYPD climbing wall, Zumba, an FDNY fire smokehouse and a basketball tournament.
