Juneteenth Village Fest

Festival Details - "Juneteenth Village Fest"...

Start: Saturday, June 18, 2022 12:00PM
End: Sunday, June 19, 2022 6:00AM

To honor and celebrate this historic park renaming and to uplift the legacies of abolitionists, Anna and Frederick Douglass, It Takes A Village Family of Schools (ITAV) is hosting our first Juneteenth Village Fest at Douglass Park on Saturday, June 18, 2022 along California Ave between 12th Pl and Ogden Ave. Juneteenth Village Fest will provide a space for Village Leadership Academy students, families, partner organizations, and the broader community to commemorate the liberation of African descendants from the institution of slavery. Thousands of guests will be inspired to reflect upon the profound legacy and ancestral roots of African Americans as programming highlights the resilience, solidarity, culture, and progress of Black communities. Local and celebrity artists have confirmed attendance, as well as elected officials, community leaders, and activists who are all truly looking forward to the festival. In addition to the main entertainment stage for adults, there will also be a youth DJ, free carnival rides, games, inflatables, community vendor booths, and so much more! We anticipate that the Juneteenth Village Fest will be the premiere Juneteenth celebration in the City of Chicago, if not the State of Illinois! Confirmed entertainment for our main stage includes: Ric Wilson Jesse White Tumblers Leon Rogers (comedian & radio personality) Bella BAHHS Redd’s Angelz with Hiplet Ballerinas A-List Dance Group New Direction Choir Darius Parker (of Kumba Lynx) with Vee Armstrong Lizzie G Spellbinder (magician) & MORE!! Village Fest will celebrate the significance of Juneteenth within Anna & Frederick Douglass Park: A powerful space with great meaning to our Village Leadership Academy students who are responsible for the renaming of the park. The inspiring work of the students has been highlighted in a documentary, “Change the Name,” which aired on BET, has been shown at film festivals across the country, and is currently being used in Chicago schools as a model to inspire youth activism and civic engagement. More information on how our Village Leadership Academy students renamed Douglass Park through Grassroots Campaigns efforts can be found here. The mission of It Takes A Village Family of Schools is to provide high-quality, culturally responsive education, and life-empowering life-empowering social services that inspire students and families to positively transform and advance their communities, nation, and world.
