Juneteenth in Cincinnati 1988-2019

Cincinnati's Juneteenth tradition began in 1988 as a neighborhood festival in Kennedy Heights--attracting some 1500 participants to Daniel Drake Park. Over the years, the annual Festival has continued to reflect its origins in a racially integrated community, with both multi-racial organization and attendance.

 In the following years the Festival has thried. Festival features have included such diverse, family-centered (and free!) activities as traditional story telling, magic acts, sack races, sweet potato pie bake-off, music (blues, African drumming & dancing, gospel, jazz, reggae, etc.).

And Festival vendors offer a wide variety of food, clothing, art, folk crafts, ethnic literature, etc.

The Festival is completely non-profit. It is staffed entirely by volunteers, organized by Juneteenth Cincinnati, with the invaluable help of many sponsors and donors.


Juneteenth Cincinnati is an Ohio non-profit-corporation. Our fiscal agent is Kennedy Heights Community Council.
