Silicon Valley Juneteenth 2018

Representing Santa Clara County

Welcome to #BayAreaJuneteenth2018

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 commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics and family gatherings. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement and for planning the future. Its growing popularity signifies a level of maturity and dignity in America long over due. In cities across the country, people of all races, nationalities and religions are joining hands to truthfully acknowledge a period in our history that shaped and continues to influence our society today. Sensitized to the conditions and experiences of others, only then can we make significant and lasting improvements in our society.

This is the African American Community Service Agency's 37th year producing the Juneteenth in the Park Festival in San Jose. Over the 36 years, the San Jose/Silicon Valley Juneteenth Festival has an average over 5,000 attendees. Entertainment has ranged from artists like Case, Jaguar Wright, Jon B., Reuben Studdard to groups like the Drifters with a wide range of local artists from Rap/Hip Hop to R&B, Gospel, and Jazz. A wide variety of food, artwork, retailers, community services and local business has always been a major drawing card for the event. Our festivals always embrace educating the community on a diverse range of information from health to educational and financial wealth. We are a family-oriented festival with a variety of activities suitable for all ages.
