The Frederick DOuglas Freedom Festival is held every June (second weekend). It commemorates the work that Douglas did for championing equal rights for all.

There is a motorcade parade for all interested in participating. Then a ceremony at the Douglas gravesite in Highland Park. More services will happen at Zion Church (549 Clarissa Street). The motorcade will go onto the Highland Bowl at Robinson Drive and South Avenue for sessions of educational speeches, live entertainment and beverages.

Participation is voluntary; all onlookers are welcome and everything is free.
