San Jose Juneteenth Going Green

Juneteenth is making an effort to help reduce our impact on the environment by diverting at least 90% of our waste from the landfill. Event attendees should help us go green by using the eco-stations correctly - blue for recycling, green for composting, and black for landfill materials.

This year's festival is at the Discovery Meadows Park, June 18th, 19th, 2016. Stay tune for more information.     Learn More About Green Initiative

The African American Community Service Agency, the Silicon Valley Black Chamber of Commerce and the Silicon Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce sign historic Agreement regarding diversity and inclusion.

SAN JOSE, CA: Juneteenth, a celebration that historically referred to a timeframe of the freeing of African Americans during the civil war, has expanded its scope of diversity with the inclusion of the Spanish and Asian cultures.

Today, Juneteenth symbolizes not only African American freedom but the freedom of expression, innovation and ingenuity of all cultures that have come to America.

This year's festival celebrates the rich history and heritages of African, Spanish and Asian cultures together in what could be the largest multi-cultural community celebration in Silicon Valley.

Education, Technology, Health & Wellness, Heritage and even a Job Fair will highlight much of the interactive participation amidst the beautiful grounds of Discovery Meadow Park in downtown San Jose.

National and local bands and artists along with cultural folk dancers make up much of the entertainment for Saturday and Sunday, June 18th & 19th, while the savory variety of the many different foods and deserts surely will please the thousands that are expected to attend.

Special guest dignitaries, athletes, city councilmembers and county supervisors are invited to participate in the opening ceremonies each day.

This is the Agency's 35th year sponsoring the Juneteenth Festival in San Jose.

We look forward to all of our communities celebrating with us through music, dance, food, arts and crafts and more. We are a family-oriented festival and encourage everyone to attend.
