Join Groundswell Center for the Southside Community Center Annual Juneteenth Festival! Groundswell Center will be tabling at this event from 12-4pm.
Each June Southside Community Centers hosts Ithaca’s only Juneteenth Celebration. By celebrating Juneteenth, we seek to remember and honor the sacrifices and struggles of our ancestors who were determined to create a better future for Black people throughout the United States and the broader African Diaspora. Thus, Juneteenth is a public affirmation of our determination to stay woke, fully exercise our human rights, and create a better future for our youth in Ithaca and throughout America.
Juneteenth commemorates African-American freedom and emphasizes education, achievement, and community.
Community members are invited to attend and enjoy great food, live music, children’s activities, a raffle with prizes from dozens of local businesses, and unique vendors. Representatives from local community organizations will share information and resources.
