Since 2003 Battle Creek, MI has been celebrating Juneteenth. The local branch of the NAACP, then president Roberta Cribbs initiated the first celebration and in 2005 Juneteenth became a state holiday. On June 16, 2017 and June 17, 2017 Battle Creek, MI will be celebrating with a softball game and a movie in Claude Evans Park. On June 17, we'll have a festival in the park from 11am-6pm. We'll headline local gospel groups, R&B groups, spoken word, essay contest, Kids Corner and a lot more.
