In 2021, the North Shore Juneteenth hosted the first-ever Diversity Matters Festival in hopes of bringing communities from across various identities together in one place to celebrate their diversity. In 2022 it came back to Red Rocks Park in Lynn and the organizers partnered with Save the Harbor Save the Bay, Marblehead School of Music, Creative Collective, and other community leaders to organize an event that included as many cultures as possible.
