juneteenth 2022 celebration @newton!

Remember how amazing last year’s Juneteenth event was? (Check out photos here if you missed it)

This year, Juneteenth celebrations hosted by FORJ NNHS will be at the Walnut Street side of Newton North High School. Vendors including Black-owned businesses, food trucks, performers, DJs, kids' activities, and art exhibits will make this a fantastic family day out (it's also Father's Day!), so please put this date in your calendars now.

  • Want to help out? Volunteers are urgently needed to help with all aspects during the day itself. Click here to sign up to help out.
