Celebrate family and freedom

Juneteenth is a free, family-friendly celebration held to commemorate the end of slavery and freedom for all through the Emancipation Proclamation. This community celebration takes place in Davis at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St., on Saturday, June 22, from 1 to 5 p.m.

Please join us in festivities that celebrate family, freedom and the diversity of our community. Featured entertainment at this Juneteenth event will include jazz musicians, vocalists, tributes to local leaders, educational exhibits and a “Hats Off to the Ancestors” Hat Extravaganza Fashion Show.

In addition to a potluck, there will be several food vendors to satisfy your taste buds. There will also be product vendors to showcase a variety of goods.

Everyone is invited to take part in this fun celebration! Davis Juneteenth gives us all the opportunity to commemorate this critical milestone in our history.
