A Juneteenth Celebration

NWA Daily

Commemorating emancipation after the Civil War, Juneteenth is an occasion to celebrate and remember. This Sunday, the Juneteenth Freedom Festival, hosted by Music Moves, is being held in downtown Springdale.

  • Making some noise: The eight hour event will feature live music performances ranging from R&B to latin, and folks from across NWA are invited to join the celebration.
  • A family affair: Emma Ave in Springdale will be closed off to vehicles and open to the public, creating a safe environment for the whole family to enjoy.

The event will be free to attend, and will start at 1pm on Sunday afternoon. Find out more about how NWA is coming together to celebrate Juneteenth HERE.
