JuneteenthKC recognizes that the need to provide positive socialization and educational activities are vital to the stability of our communities.

In an effort to continue to provide this service to the community  JuneteenthKC has identified the following preventative measures to be implemented during all community gatherings. 


JuneteenthKC thanks the City of Kansas City Health Department, Home State Health, Healthy Blue Missouri for its continued support by providing FREE masks & hand sanitizer to be distributed at all 2022 community initiatives! 

To assist in preventing the spread of COVID-19 during community events JuneteenthKC will execute & abide by the following procedures:

  • Event activities will end by 9:00 pm 

  • Events will utilize multiple entrances and exits and discourage crowded waiting areas

  • Event organizers will provide physical guides, such as tape on floors or sidewalks and signs on walls, to ensure that individuals remain at least 6 feet apart in lines and at other times (such as guides for creating one-way routes).
