The Juneteenth Day celebration in Milwaukee is one of the nations largest and oldest. It has been going on for over forty years! Juneteenth Day commemorates the day in 1865 when word reached slaves in Texas that the Civil War had ended, marking the final emancipation.
A mix of local artists and musicians will perform alongside food vendors. A parade kicks off at 10am.
Epikos plans to serve at Juneteenth Day! As we look forward to the launch of the North Side campus, this is a great way to build relationships and serve the community. Final plans are still being made, but serving opportunities will be shifts of 2 hours for roles like set up, tear down, snow cone server, and bounce house monitor.
