John A. Logan College will host a Juneteenth Celebration on June 18 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Waterfall Courtyard. The event will feature local food vendors Smokin K's BBQ and Cajun Cuisine, and Cold Blooded Coffee and Roastery, as well as live entertainment by the J-Sound Band. Attendees can also enjoy arts and games, dancing, storytelling, and poetry.

"We are thrilled to host this Juneteenth Celebration at John A. Logan College," said JALC President Dr. Kirk Overstreet. "This is the third year we have hosted this event on campus, and it has been greatly supported by our community. It's an opportunity for our community to come together, reflect on our history, and celebrate our progress. We invite everyone to join us for an evening of fun, food, and fellowship."

The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, tents, and picnic blankets for a comfortable experience.
