Juneteenth

We are excited to continue our tradition of celebrating Juneteenth with our community, and we couldn't do it without the support of our sponsors and supporters. Your donations help us provide college scholarships for local high school students and make our free community festival possible. Thank you for being a part of our celebration of freedom and community!

For 26 years a committed group of community volunteers, working with a dedicated group of sponsors, have ensured the success of the Juneteenth Banquet and Festival events. The Daytona Beach Juneteenth Festival is the largest and longest-running event of its kind within the state of Florida. The Juneteenth Festival Committee, Inc., a non-profit organization, looks forward to working with your business to present the third Juneteenth National Holiday Community Celebration events with a Parade and Festival on Saturday, June 15, 2024, followed by a Banquet on Tuesday, June 18, 2024.


We celebrate the centuries of struggle, courage, and hope that has brought us to this time of progress and possibility. That work has been led throughout our history by abolitionists and educators, civil rights advocates and lawyers, courageous activists and trade unionists, public officials, and everyday Americans who have helped make real the ideals of our founding documents for all. Juneteenth not only commemorates the past but calls us to action today. 

 

As we plan for the 2024 Juneteenth National Holiday Community Celebration events, we look forward to once again honoring our Hometown Heroes. These citizens are selected every year to recognize them for the sacrifice, compassion, and commitment they make every day to our children, our seniors, and our community. The proceeds from these events have also helped support college scholarships for area youths.


This year’s Juneteenth Family Festival will showcase the historic Sankofa Traveling Museum. They will display more than 500 artifacts which document African American life dating back to the 1800’s. This free, all-day community event will also include live musical entertainment, several food truck and beverage vendors, merchandise and sponsors booths, interactive activity booths, live African-style dancers, children's games, including pony rides and a petting zoo, in addition to educational activities and a Pound Cake Contest. In addition, proceeds from this event will help support college scholarships for area youth.

We are looking forward to working together with other community leaders, to provide this educational experience and family entertainment in Daytona Beach’s Midtown Redevelopment Area. We are ever grateful for the sponsors who have committed their support to these community events in the past, to include: Foundation Risk Partners, Brown & Brown Insurance, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Florida Lottery, NASCAR, Vystar Credit Union, Volusia County Council, Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, Daytona State College, Island Doctors, Our Lady of Lourdes, and Realty Pros to name a few.


We believe that the 26th Annual Juneteenth National Holiday Community Celebration (JNHCC) is an excellent way for your business to continue to demonstrate its deep
commitment to the Daytona Beach Community as well as showcase its many excellent services. Your sponsorship would be most appreciated and will greatly contribute to the success of the upcoming Juneteenth Family Banquet, Parade, and Festival and allow us to provide more services to the community. Please see the details on the following pages. Thank you in advance for your time and interest in this important community event. Should you have any questions, please contact us.
