Juneteenth Cultural Festival & Parade

Culture. Community. Celebration.

Join us for the annual Juneteenth Cultural Festival and Parade

 We honor and celebrate the rich heritage and enduring spirit of African American freedom, resilience, and achievement, while fostering community unity, education, and cultural exchange on the occasion of Juneteenth.

The Juneteenth Cultural Festival and Parade, held annually on June 19th, celebrates the emancipation of the last enslaved African Americans in the U.S. in 1865. This event not only commemorates a key historical milestone but also emphasizes the richness of African American culture through its main cultural elements.

This festival not only educates but also unites diverse communities, highlighting the importance of cultural interaction and the power of inclusivity.
