Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Today, it commemorates African American freedom and achievement while it also encourages continuous self-development. FIU's second annual Juneteenth Celebration will take place from June 11-18, culminating in FIU's newest tradition, our Freedom Day Celebration on June 18, from 11am to 4pm.
The entire University community is invited to our second annual Juneteenth Freedom Day Celebration. Lawn chairs and mats are welcome as we gather at the Earlene and Albert Dotson Pavilion Lawn (MARC building at MMC). Umbrellas will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. This free event is open to the entire community and will feature musical performances, local artisan vendors, activities, food trucks, raffles, and fun for the whole family. Registration is required. The first 200 faculty/staff and 150 students to register will receive a food voucher to use any of the event’s food trucks.
