Congo Square’s Juneteenth Celebrations

This Juneteenth, come celebrate Black voices, Black art, and Black excellence at Congo Square Theatre’s 2022 Festival on the Square and Vision Benefit!

On June 19, 2022 , the Black community will come together for this lively, family-friendly, and FREE program, inspired by the original Congo Square located in New Orleans. Festival on the Square aims to celebrate arts, healing, and Black joy. Themed around “Homecoming,” this year’s Festival will showcase a vibrant collection of live music, theatrical readings and much more. And best of all, this year’s programming is live and in-person!

Tickets to Festival on the Square are free and the event is open to the public.

The fun doesn’t end with Festival on the Square. Our 2022 Vision Benefit takes place later that evening, on June 19, 2022 from 6p-10p , as we honor Luther Goins, Jacqueline Williams, and Rueben D. Echoles. With options to attend in-person or virtually, you’ll witness firsthand the resiliency of the Black community and our dedication to being a haven for artists of color and to create transformative Black theatre.
