The annual 1865 Fest brings cultural family activities, live music, educational workshops, food and fun to Garfield Park for three days, June 17-19, 2022. Honoring the Juneteeth holiday that brought freedom to enslaved Americans two years after official emancipation in 1865, the free events connect culture, history and community.
Each day highlights a different theme, with a flag-raising ceremony and a military honors showcase on the 17th, family activities and educational workshops on the 18th and a Father’s Day grill off and live entertainment on the 19th. Live music and free food are featured during all the fest events, which take place in the Music Court Drive in Garfield Park, from 11 am-8 pm.
