Celebrate Juneteenth with LA County Parks and Recreation!
FREE Performances, Guest Speaker Series, Wellness Activities, Art Displays and So Much More in L.A. County Parks
It’s Park Time L.A. County! LA County Parks and Recreation invites you to our Juneteenth celebrations, on Saturday, June 18th, all across L.A. County. Attend a celebration at Earvin Magic Johnson Park in South L.A. Dalton Park in Azusa, El Cariso Park in Sylmar, and Jackie Robinson Park in Sun Village.
Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States; specifically, when former slaves were finally freed in Galveston, Texas, two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Though long celebrated within the Black community, Juneteenth was formally made a federal holiday on June 17th, 2021. Juneteenth Celebrations are hosted in partnership with local community organizations. Activities feature musical performances, speaker’s series, wellness activities, resource fairs, artist experiences, hands-on children’s activities and so much more.
For more information on Juneteenth celebrations, contact Delmy Villegas-Delgado, Recreation Manager at (626) 369-5141 or at [email protected]. These are FREE events with no registration required. Food available onsite at cost by local businesses.
