Worcester has celebrating African American history and culture with a festival since 1997. Its most recent iteration being Juneteenth. The Black Heritage Festival celebrates the past with consciousness to inspire the future. The festival is planned and implemented annually through the efforts of a volunteer committee of local people electing to act in accordance with the axiom, “none of us are free until we are all free.” The festival is for the people and is reliant on the financial support of individuals, businesses, and organizations in the community. We ask for your help in helping us move forward to this community event. Please review the giving opportunities found on the next page. With your support, this year’s Juneteenth Festival will be just as incredible as the years before!
