WHAT: Residents are invited to join Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings and the Orange County Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Initiative for this year’s Juneteenth Celebration, “Juneteenth: Progression from Then to Now Through Song & Dance” scheduled for Wednesday, June 19, 2024, at the Orange County Multicultural Center, located at 7149 West Colonial Drive, Orlando.

The event is free, open to the public, and will showcase the progression of the African American culture through song, dance, cultural artifacts, education, financial fortitude, and mental health and wellness.

There will be live entertainment, free give-a-ways, and onsite community partners to highlight their resources and services.

On Tuesday, June 18, 2024, the Orange County Board of County Commissioners will also present an official proclamation to commemorate and recognize the equality and progression of African Americans in Central Florida and across the globe in the spirit of Juneteenth. Through collaboration and inclusion, Orange County will continue to create a community culture that works for everyone.

June 19, 2024
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

WHERE: Orange County Multicultural Center
7149 West Colonial Drive, Orlando, Florida 32818
WHO: The Orange County Mayor’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Initiative’s Annual Juneteenth Celebration hosted and moderated by WKMG News 6 Anchor, Crystal Moyer.

MORE INFO: While Juneteenth recognizes the freedom of African Americans, it also promotes continuous self-development and respect for all cultures and ethnicities. It has begun to take on a more national, symbolic, and even global perspective. The events of 1865 will never be forgotten. Embracing cultural differences breeds a sense of growth and cohesiveness.
