The Juneteenth Urban Music Festival is set to kick off June 16-19, 2016 at Robert R. Church Park in Downtown Memphis on “World Famous” Beale Street. This marks the 24th year that we’ll be showcasing a variety of entertainers and genres of music – from gospel to R & B, jazz to hip-hop, and more. Entrance is FREE. Food Trucks and many vendors will be present. Beale Street is just a few steps away.

JUNETEENTH is a holiday in the USA that commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery and the freeing of the last slaves in the state of Texas on June 19, 1865, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862, with an effective date of January 1, 1863. It is known also as Juneteenth Independence Day, Freedom Day, or Emancipation Day, and observed annually in Memphis during Father’s Day weekend as the Juneteenth Urban Music Festival.

Please support The Brian Callies Band as they perform on Soul Sunday, June 19, Fathers Day at 5:00 PM on the Main Stage. We would appreciate that so much.
