Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States and organizers in Fond du Lac are holding a festival to celebrate the day this Saturday.

Ebony Vision says the historical festival is a family-filled day of entertainment, poetry, song, dance, children’s activities, and speakers, as well as food and raffle sales that will help Ebony Vision’s annual fundraiser.

The group says Juneteenth is also a time to strengthen the bonds of unity and offer support to one another as we all share in the blessings of freedom, saying celebrating Juneteenth in the Fond du Lac community helps educate all people about African American culture.

The festival takes place tomorrow in Buttermilk Creek Park from 11 AM to 5 PM.
