The Juneteenth for Joy Festival was created to gather Black families and their allies to celebrate our freedom through the lens of joy.
Our annual festival is celebrated at the Von D. Mizell- Eula Johnson State Park Beach, with satellite events happening all across South Florida throughout the year.
Using the theme: "Building Black Utopias: Transforming Redlines into Green Spaces", we gather stories of joy, hope, and prosperity from historically redlined neighborhoods to share with our community. We also partner with businesses and community organizations invested in home ownership, economic empowerment, health, wellness, and positive youth development to sustainably change the outcomes.
Learning, Legacy, Land, and Love are our principles.
Powerful, multigenerational storytelling is our vehicle.
Juneteenth for Joy is a fiscal sponsor of The Center for Social Change, a 501c3 organization
