Manhattan KS Juneteenth Festival

Come and Celebrate 27 Years With Us

This year marks our 27th Annual Manhattan Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday, June 18 at City Park, Manhattan, KS. The theme this year's one-day event is "Freedom - Community - Family".

This year's Juneteenth celebration has a lot of new activities and events which will appeal to families, people of all ages and walks of life while at the same time focusing on the importance and meaning associated with the day.  Also, this marks the first annual Juneteenth Community Unity Walk as we also celebrate the life of our former committee Chair, Don "Donnie" Slater.

Headlined by the Charles Walker Band, making their second appearance in Manhattan since August of last year, grounded in soul, the Charles Walker Band has refined their unique sound into Neo-Funk, a fusion of funk, rhythm & blues, and soul infused with melodic pop influences.  Come see them set the stage on fire at the 27th Annual Manhattan Juneteenth Celebration!

All proceeds go towards the Don Slater Scholarship Fund, Hand to Hand Tutoring Program and future Juneteenth Events.
