Event Description

The Juneteenth Heritage Festival is an annual  African American celebration that dates back to June 19th, 1865 when the enslaved people in Texas and other southern states learned that they were “free.”  Bring  family and  friends to enjoy the 2-day FREE outdoor festival showcasing outstanding work from fine artists, fashion & jewelry designers and food artists as well as enjoy great music. Additional activities include the Technology Tent, providing kids the opportunity to learn how to make an app, the Health Village – learn how to do CPR and other emergency techniques,  and don’t miss our History/Inventors area. Plus chess and bid whist games for adults – fun for the whole family!

In Leimert Park Village, Degnan Blvd & 43rd Street, Los Angeles 90008
