The 12th Annual Juneteenth Celebration
We are excited to announce that the 12th Annual Oakland Juneteenth Celebration is fast approaching! Please join us on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 925 Brockhurst Street Oakland, CA 94608, between Market Street and San Pablo Avenue for a day for music, free health screens, historical education and family fun. This year’s theme is “We Are Connected by Our Roots” Our event brings together people of all ethnicities and cultures of the Greater Bay Area to celebrate the end of slavery in the United States.
Thanks to sponsors like Alameda County Public Health, the City/County Neighborhood Initiative, the City of Oakland and the Akonadi Foundation, Oakland Juneteenth Celebration has brought people from all over the city together to commemorate this unique moment in history. Last year, over 1,000 people enjoyed the festival that included live music, free health screenings, oral history presentations, quilting, and many other symbolic activities to commemorate our African American heritage. This year we will again honor individuals and organizations such as the Oakland Post Newspaper and provide even more opportunities for the community to hear from the voices of our ancestors:
- Live Blues and Jazz performances
- Vendors & Community Resource displays and sales
- Kids Zone
- Health Zone to provide health screening & resources
- Racial Justice
- Mental Health Awareness
- Movie Screening
- Artist Workshops
