In addition, WMNF is thrilled to honor this holiday with The Palladium Theater! Established by art philanthropists in 1998, the historic theater’s mission has always been to serve all of Tampa Bay as a performing arts center that welcomes everyone and serves the entire community with artistically and culturally diverse performing arts and programs. As two organizations that put community first, WMNF and The Palladium hope you join us in celebrating Juneteenth this year!
