At Collingwood Apartments in Alpharetta, GA, we know that people from all over the country will celebrate Juneteenth, commemorating the date of June 19, 1865, the end of African American slavery in the United States.
The Idea Specialists, at Collingwood, have identified several Juneteenth events they think might be of interest to you. So, to begin with, those of us in and around Atlanta this weekend, can celebrate freedom with Juneteenth Atlanta, a three-day Black History music festival and parade that kicks off on Friday, June 18, at Centennial Olympic Park. It is free, but donations of all sizes are appreciated.
And there is more. Much more.
Also, in the style and fashion-category you will want to sign up NOW for the “Black Label: Juneteenth Fashion Show” at The Pink Zebra Boutique, home to 20+ independent brands ranging from streetwear to high fashion including exclusive accessories. This show will highlight local house designers and curators when the retail floor transforms into a runway setting the stage for a night of appetizing apparel, and cocktails and networking.
If fashion is not your thing – sign up to participate in the Juneteenth Atlanta 5K, the Gala in the Garden for Neighbor in Need, or a Sip n Paint event, to show your support for 2021’s Juneteenth Atlanta.
Chances are you may have already made plans to honor this momentous occasion with a Juneteenth family reunion, worship service, or Father’s Day celebration with your own family. Whether an intimate family gathering or a large-scale community event, there is plenty to do for everyone.
Here’s a complete-ish list of ways to celebrate with Juneteenth Atlanta.
