Clarksville Juneteenth Festival & Parade

You must never, ever give out. We must keep the faith because we are one people. We are brothers and sisters. We all live in the same house: The American house.

 Clarksville Juneteenth Festival

June 19th, also known as Juneteenth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved Africans in America. While Juneteenth commemorates freedom, we also use it as a day to explore and celebrate African American culture and beauty. Manifest Magic invites the entire community to celebrate with us!

The Clarksville Juneteenth Festival creates an unforgettable immersive cultural experience through art, storytelling, spoken word, food, live music and DJs, dance, literature and so more. 

The festival also features a large assortment of great vendors to shop with, awesome food trucks, and a Kids Zone for young people of all ages  – with art, video games, craft activities, bounce houses, and more. The annual Clarksville Juneteenth Festival is sure to be fun for the whole family.

The parade starts at 10am. Hang out anyplace along the route to celebrate freedom, history, and culture.
