About this event

On June 19th, 2021, The Annual Juneteenth Freedom Fest Charleston will be held at the Riverfront Park located in North Charleston, SC. Celebrating Juneteenth in Charleston, South Carolina as a large-scale event is significant.

Juneteenth Freedom Fest Charleston is free to the public with an estimate of 3000 guests in attendance.

The event will last all day kicking off at 2 pm and ending at 10 pm with a Grand Fireworks Show Finale! There will be live performances throughout the day, Art, Music, Food, and Kids Activities. Juneteenth Freedom Fest Charleston is a celebration organized to bring our community together from every walk of life in celebration of our journey to freedom for all, libration, and remembrance of how far we have come and where we are going. Join us for the First Annual Juneteenth Freedom Fest in Charleston, SC, and let’s celebrate together!

1 Million Cups: Entrepreneurs @ The School House
Jun 23 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

1 Million Cups (1MC) is a chapter of the Kauffman Organization that created a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Their weekly “caffeinated” events offer local entrepreneurs valuable exposure and feedback on their startups in a supportive environment.

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday the program offers one or two entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, investors,  entrepreneurs, the public, you name it! Presenters prepare a six-minute educational presentation and engage in twenty minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather real-time feedback, connect with a community that cares about their progress and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to network in Charleston, make new friends, and reconnect with old ones. Coffee is provided each week and all events are free to attend and open to the public. To check out who’s up next to present, visit www.1millioncups.com/charleston.

We hope you can make it! If you are interested in presenting your startup at one of the 1MC events, click here.
