ITAV Juneteenth Village Festival
It Takes a Village Family of Schools (ITAV) will be hosting a 1-day Juneteenth Village Festival on Saturday, June 18 from 12pm-6pm in Chicago’s Anna and Frederick Douglass Park! This lively event will be free & open to the public, jam-packed with food, fun, family, & tradition!
We are expecting a huge turnout from our community and local support from the West Side Douglass Park neighborhood and beyond. There will be a main stage and youth stage with games and activities for the entire family. In addition to a Ferris wheel, there will be a petting zoo, rock climbing wall, inflatables, carnival rides, community vendor booths, face painting, giveaways and so much more! We have both local and celebrity artists who have confirmed attendance, as well as elected officials, community leaders, and activists who are all truly looking forward to the fest.
We hope to hold this honorary event for many more years to come, on the heels of our participation in getting the formerly named Douglas Park renamed in spirit of Frederick & Anna Douglass. Meet us on California between 12th and Ogden for the best family-friendly festival on the West Side for Juneteenth!
