Norman Harris and Erica Wright, lead organizers behind Denver’s Juneteenth Music Festival and part of The Holleran Group team, played a leading role in revitalizing the Juneteenth Music Festival in Denver. The large-scale three-day event included hundreds of vendors, live concerts and entertainment, and thousands of attendees. This year’s event was the most successful yet, not only serving as an important community gathering point but also elevating the important events of Juneteenth for the entire City. While Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, Emancipation Day and Black Independence Day, has been celebrated for over 100 years, on June 17th, 2021 it became an official federal holiday.
