Watch a Recap of Our 2023 Juneteenth Events
A Message from Our General Chairperson:
Thank you to all sponsors and the community for making Iowa Juneteenth Observance 2022 a success. We had a wonderful time celebrating our past, reflecting over the present, and planning our future. Your donation to the organization will be used to further the mission which is to provide education in African American culture and history, collaborating with like-minded organizations to cultivate awareness of our contributions. The theme for Iowa Juneteenth 2023 is Freedom to be. The Des Moines Urban Experience looks forward to bringing our Iowa Juneteenth festivities to the area each year. Sign up to be a volunteer for 2023.
