We are now accepting artists submissions for our
2016 Juneteenth in the Park Festival
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond.
Today, Juneteenth symbolizes not only African American freedom but the freedom of all cultures here in Silicon Valley. Juneteenth encourages involvement in technology, health & wellness, promote family, fun and play activities along with celebrating all heritages while providing in-roads into education and even jobs.
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

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 Meadow Park, June 18th, 19th, 2016. Stay tune for more information.
