Freedom Day Celebration

This is a past event.

Saturday, June 15 at 1:00pm to 5:00pm

FIU Dotson Family Pavilion 11200 Southwest 8th Street Dotson Family Pavilion Miami, FL 33199

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.

Rain or shine, the entire University community is invited to our fourth 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). This free event is open to the entire community and will feature live performances, local artisan vendors, activities, dancers, food trucks, raffles, and fun for the whole family.

Be sure to stop by the Frost Lounge (guests over 21 only) at the Frost Museum during their Summer Exhibition Party to cool off, open from 1:00-5:00 pm. Registration is required.

* The first 200 faculty/staff and the first 200 students to register will each receive a $15.00 food voucher to use at any of the event’s food trucks, limited to one voucher per faculty/staff/student. To claim your voucher, please use your FIU email.
