District 65 Juneteenth Parade & Celebration

Join District 65 for the communitywide Juneteenth Parade & Celebration

District 65 has been invited to participate in Evanston’s 4th Annual Juneteenth Parade and Celebration to be held on Saturday, June 17. In an effort to build community and celebrate this historic day, we are inviting interested staff, students, and their families to represent our school district as part of the parade which will also include performances by The Jesse White Tumblers, South Shore Drill Team, and representation from various organizations across our community.

Juneteenth (June 19) is a historic day commemorating enslaved African Americans’ emancipation. It is a day of celebration, remembrance, and reflection and is now a state and federal holiday! Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) Team will host an event on Friday, June 16, at the Joseph E. Hill Education Center (1500 McDaniel Avenue, Evanston) from 4 – 7 pm to make signs and decorations. 

Our goal is to represent District 65’s efforts toward diversity and inclusion and bring our community together to celebrate the progress made since Juneteenth while acknowledging the work still left to do to achieve true equality. We would love to gather 100 people!

Interest Form and More Details

Event Details: The parade will include performances by the South Shore Drill Team and The Jesse White Tumblers, floats, walking groups, marching bands, and cars. The commemoration will continue where the parade ends at Ingraham Park until 6 pm with art, music, food, vendors, and speakers.

March with us: We will walk as a district, interact with community members on the parade route (2.3 miles), and show off our D65 spirit.  

Date & time: Saturday, June 17, 2023. The parade start time is 10:30 am. Meet at Robert Crown Community Center, 1801 Main Street, Evanston to march at 10 am
