Juneteenth Celebration

06 | 19 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In partnership with Melanin Mountain Project.

Join us in celebrating Juneteenth, honoring a true independence day for us all. We’ll be gathering at the Black Dragon bar and in the Feldberg East Courtyard for art, food, drinks, games, and community!

This will be Crested Butte’s first ever Juneteenth celebration. The Center is proud to work with Melanin Mountain Project to uplift black culture, poetry, and art with this celebration. We will be honoring black freedom, families, and heritage with poetry readings, musical performances, and discussion.

Poetry readings by Assetou Xango and friends. African drumming performance by Etienne Tolno. Paintings on display from local black artists Ashley Jackson and Amethyst McDowell.

Taqueria Nayarit will be selling tacos in our courtyard!

This is a free event, but donations to Melanin Mountain Project are always appreciated!
