ABOUT

Juneteenth JoyFest is a Black Arts & Culture festival to honor the history of Black heritage for Juneteenth. This festival was created to support black entrepreneurs and artists, provide space for communal healing, and build community on North 24th Street, resulting in a free and fun experience.

 

Juneteenth Joy Fest had its first annual festival in 2022 curated by Alajia McKizia, in partnership with the Fabric Lab, the North Omaha Trail, and the Union for Contemporary Art. In 2021, Alajia hosted a small community event in an empty lot outside of her house to celebrate Juneteenth and Black artists. In 2022, over $20,000 directly went to supporting Black artists and entrepreneurs. North Omaha and its residents deserve to have culturally exceptional experiences to highlight the amazing impact it has given to Omaha for years prior and years to come. We want Juneteenth JoyFest to be a yearly moment to exchange that joy, information, expression, entrepreneurship and celebration.

PAST EXPERIENCES

2023 Juneteenth Joy Fest was about envisioning Black Futures in Omaha, Nebraska. We were heavily inspired by the Harlem Renaissance Era and Afro-futurism. Through the artists performing, event atmosphere, and community partners, Joy Fest 2023 expressed Black excellence and exceptional culture in Omaha as its always been in the roots of the city.
