Art, culture, and community combine at the 7th Annual Juneteenth Black Arts Festival. Community-led and community-driven, CORE hosts an annual Juneteenth Festival through the intentional stewardship of our planning team. Since in 2018, the Juneteenth event has transformed - growing from our initial location accommodating 100 people, to over 3000 attendees joining us from across the Triangle region.

Juneteenth Black Arts Festival is a dedicated space of reverence for the impact of Black arts and culture on American culture. We commit to offering an opportunity for Black artists and entrepreneurs to build relationships and increase their exposure across communities. We honor the creative genius and spirit of excellence that prevails within the Black community because we recognize barriers that remain in place today, excluding them from mainstream business opportunities.

Juneteenth with CORE is an experience for ALL. This Festival offers cultural experiences, educational opportunities, networking prospects, local resources, and a vision for liberation. Individuals, family, and community joining us on June 15th of this year will explore history, art, and food - challenging stereotypes and building a sense of pride in the dynamic heritage of Black Americans and American culture.
