Go Fund Me page started

In the third year, the celebration was postponed, as funding was not as readily available as it was the first two years. Windsor has known its fair share of hard times and the cancelation of the 2016 celebration was further proof of that.
This is why we are looking to you, the community, for help in assuring that the Emancipation Celebration becomes self-sustaining for many, many generations to come! Help spread the word!Though the celebration itself does not occur traditionally until August, it takes many months of planning and preparation. That is why we ask that you begin contributing now.

Being raised in Windsor with this tradition, it is our responsibilty to see that the legacy lives on – our heritage as a community working together be shared with our youth and newcomers, until it is once again woven into the fabric of the City of Windsor until the world is once again familiar with “The Greatest Freedom Show on Earth!”

EMANCIPATION CELEBRATION AT LANSPEARY POSTPONED UNTIL 2017

July 1, 2016

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the Emancipation Celebration at Lanspeary Park, previously scheduled for August 6 & 7, 2016.

Though the past two years proved to be successful in attracting Windsorites and special guests to the event, it is a costly endeavour. For these years, the majority of the funding has come directly from committee members and local business supporters. This year, there is simply not enough funding.

After recent restructuring, we have committed ourselves to working with other community groups and government agencies to ensure that the Emancipation Celebrations at Lanspeary Park continue in the coming year.

We are extremely grateful to the thousands who did participate in the previous two celebrations and commit to you, that the Emancipation Celebrations at Lanspeary Park will continue in 2017.
