Category: Event Calendar

Date and Time for this Past Event



The Juneteenth Jam Block Party is back & better than ever! In partnership with the Harvey B. Gantt Center, The Mint Museum and the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, we're taking over Uptown and cranking up the celebration! The lineup will include an explosion of artistry from FRESH2DEATH, performances by Moving with the Spirits & CLT Double Dutch Aerobics, plus a tik-tok dance battle between families called Family Dance Feud! Join us at the block party! Sounds will be provided by DJ Heff and DJ Micki Blends, along with delicious food trucks, vendors, games, and MORE! All events are FREE and open to the general public. Grab the crew and GET OUTSIDE! Two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed, freedom was finally realized for all enslaved people of the United States. Juneteenth is a joyous national holiday that celebrates that historic moment. Conceived by Emmy Award-winning poet and Blumenthal Director of Creative Engagement Boris "Bluz" Rogers, Juneteenth Jam will be held at the super cool Levine Ave. Juneteenth Jam - guaranteed fun that will have the whole family jammin'!
