Juneteenth Block Party in Downtown Tempe


Join us on June 15, 2024 from 7PM - 11PM for a Juneteenth Block Party in CenterPoint Plaza!

The Juneteenth Block Party welcomes all ages to join in the celebration under the banner of Freedom of Expression, commemorating the strides made in the ongoing quest for racial equality and justice.

Musical performances, spoken word and DJ sets from DJ Panic and DJ AKSHEN. They will be on the turntables all night, along with performances from the Furious Styles Crew! They'll be opening the floor for all to join in on the fun and express yourself this Juneteenth! 

At Ars Poetica's station, poets will be creating a unique experience by crafting personalized haiku poems for each individual about YOUR story on old-school typewriters.

Enjoy a selection of adult beverages including Crown Royal cocktails, locally awarded beers from Pedal Haus, and more! Feast on mouthwatering BBQ from Kingpin BBQ and soul-touching dishes from 28 Still Cooking. And don't miss Flav-Oh's old-skool ice cream truck, offering nostalgic treats from the nineties and Sunset Freeze, serving up their legendary sorbets!

Lace up your roller skates and dance to the rhythm of Juneteenth with a retro roller rink experience for all ages with Zoni Girls! Join the 40plus Double Dutch Club for an opportunity to jump rope and showcase your skills!

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, double dutch is a fun and inclusive activity for all ages. Learn about the cultural heritage of double dutch while engaging in the friendly fun!

Take a break from the festivities and enjoy a premium cigar in the RichKat Mobile Cigar Lounge! The lounge offers an exclusive experience for event attendees, including the opportunity to purchase cigars and indulge in some relaxation!
