Juneteenth 2017 is Here!
June 11th - June 17th 2017 
The Board of Directors and the 2017 Juneteenth Festival Planning Committee welcomes you to our website.

It is the mission of Juneteenth-Jefferson City to promote commitment, dedication, and achievement by bringing a diversity of people together as one community.   The 2017 theme of "Health, Hope, and Happiness"  speaks to our goal of providing an annual Juneteenth Scholarship to a deserving student and to provide financial support to the Boys and Girls Club of the Capital City.

As a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, we seek corporate, civic, and individual donations, sponsorships and underwriting of the annual Juneteenth Heritage Festival.  The festival spotlights and promotes our history,  education, achievements, cultural and artistic acumen, youth development, recreation and entertainment.

All are invited to come out, bring a friend and take part in this great community celebration.  
For information on how you can participate or to support this endeavor, please feel free to contact us at (573) 893-4191, (573) 893-5562 or juneteenthjc@aol.com
