June 13, 2019

Louisville – For the tenth year in a row, the Shawnee Ministries and Community Collaborative is bringing a community celebration to the Shawnee neighborhood!

“The Shawnee CommUNITY Celebration is for the whole family,” says Councilwoman Donna Purvis (D-5). “It is a great way to start Father’s Day weekend off on Saturday, June 15 by celebrating with family and friends at this fun-packed afternoon event.”

From 1:00pm-4:00pm you can enjoy a car show featuring the 502 Corvette Club and the Derby City Truckers, free grilled hot dogs provided by the American Legion, music and entertainment from Louisville’s own band, The Connection, as well as other local musical and spoken word artists. 

There will also be kids’ games, health screenings including mammograms, health and information booths, a yard sale, and lots of door prizes! The car show and other activities will be at French Plaza, located at the corner of West Market Street and Amy Avenue in the Shawnee neighborhood.

The media are invited to attend and interview guests and event planners. For questions, or to plan an interview, contact Anne Peak at 502-778-0001 or
