The Cobb County branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will be co-hosting along with Marietta city, the annual Juneteenth celebration in Marietta Square.
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration of the ending of slavery. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers led by major general Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that all slaves were free. This was two and a half years after President Lincoln had issued the Emancipation Proclamation. The celebration of June 19th was coined “Juneteenth” and grew with more participation from descendants. Juneteenth today celebrates African-American freedom while encouraging self-development and respect for all cultures.
The event will have lots of activities for the family including: a children play area, food, live entertainment, vendors, music, information booths, voter registration, raffles, health screenings and NAACP Juneteenth t-shirts and memberships, plus fun, fellowship and networking.

Making a difference to the community is one of our priorities at KLF Pro Entertainment. This cause is especially important to us as our CEO lost his father to dementia in 2016. Since then, we’ve decided to partner with the Alzheimer Association to show our continued support.
Worldwide, 47 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Join the Alzheimer’s Association in going purple and raising awareness this June. The more people know about Alzheimer’s, the more action we inspire.
