The 5th annual Juneteenth Celebration will take over the Spring Shop Studios space in Fayetteville on Wednesday, June 19th, in honor of the historic day.

Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated each year on June 19 to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States on that date in 1865, also known as “Black Independence Day”. In Fayetteville, AR, we celebrate the occasion at this annual community event by coming together to enjoy free food, live music, and Black voices! This year’s theme is "The Family Reunion", a nod to the notion that “it takes a village” to navigate life.


Everyone is invited to come out, learn about the importance of Juneteenth, and gather with the village in Fayetteville, AR! Even the kids will be thrilled, as the event always includes a widely popular play area just for them. In addition to the food and fun, the Juneteenth Celebration will be the site for a wide range of free community resources, including financial, mental health, and health coaching to assist our low-income community members. The festivities will take place at the Spring Shop Studios at 704 S. Washington Ave. in Fayetteville from 4:00 to 9:00pm on Wednesday, June 19th.

The Juneteenth Celebration is hosted each year by Let’s Talk NWA, a group based out of Fayetteville whose mission is to break the cycle of domestic violence and sexual assault in the Black community through education and awareness. You can learn more at nwasexualassault.org/lets-talk-nwa
