Southside Community Center works to affirm, empower, and foster the development of self-pride among the African American citizens of greater Ithaca.



It is that time of year again! Southside Community Center is gearing up to VIRTUALLY celebrate our annual Juneteenth Festival! This year’s theme is ” Filling in the Gaps-Black Consciousness.” To prioritize the health and well-being of our families, employees, partners, and communities, we have decided to shift our Juneteenth Festival from an in-person event to a VIRTUAL DIGITAL EXPERIENCE. We are creating a unique online event—including keynotes, vendors, performers, and educational sessions—that will bring us together to connect, share, and learn from each other. This community celebration has been happening for many years and we are looking forward to continuing the tradition!

Please complete this short form to indicate your interest in participating as a donor, speaker, presenter, vendor, performer, or artist during the Virtual Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday, June 13th, beginning at 12 noon.

Virtual Juneteenth Form



Please feel free to contact our office at (607) 273-4190 between 10 am-2 pm Monday -Friday if you need assistance connecting to additional resources.

In Good Health,

Southside Staff
