This Year's Theme: 

Celebrating Collective Land Ownership!

We are excited to open up ticket sales for our 2024 Juneteenth Celebration and Little Kemet Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony. This year is a super special year because as you know, we will be celebrating on OUR OWN LAND! We are giving extra advance notice because we want all of you to come out this year!

Fun, Food, & Entertainment for the entire family, including the dog!

Live entertainment, birthday party, camping, hiking, horseback riding, sports, drumming, cards, workshops and more!

 

CAMP OUT WITH US!

We will be camping out on the land all weekend! We will have 12 acres cleared and manicured for this big campout! We have tent packages available for those who don't want the hassle of buying and trying to figure out how to pitch a tent!
