 is a night to remember with a 20-minute fireworks show created by Arthur Rozzi Pyrotechnics, one of the leaders in the fireworks entertainment industry.  This event will be the first official Juneteenth Fireworks Festival in the greater Cincinnati area.  To kick off the Fireworks Festival, we'll have multiple events including over 50 Black vendors.  During this year's Festival, we’d like to see a minimum of $50,000 poured back into the Black, small business community, so please come ready to shop!  Additionally,  there will be a Health Fair, a Career Fair, and we’ll celebrate Black history all day long!  We’ll also give away Black Excellence Awards to people who are doing outstanding things in the community to support the Black culture.  We believe it’s very important the next generation understands how important Juneteenth is in the Black community - this is an Independence Day celebration.  We’ve come so far but we have so far to go.  We believe this event is just another step in the right direction.  Let’s light up the night and let’s do it for the Culture!
