About Fresno Juneteenth

The Fresno Juneteenth Collaborative Committee brings you another invigorating and exciting celebration. The Fresno 2024 Annual Juneteenth Celebration! This year's theme is "Forging a Legacy of shared prosperity, justice, and cultural harmony". The 7-days of education, fun, music, food, and dance will serve to recognize the importance of an equitable country for all Americans.

Juneteenth is the African American's addendum to Independence Day. It is a nationally recognized and celebrated holiday which commemorates the notification of the Emancipation Proclamation to Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865 that freed some of the last slaves in America. The Fresno community has been celebrating this historical event for over 30 years.

This years’ observance is expected to attract over 8,000 community members, who will enjoy the festivities which include a parade, performances, inspirational speakers, workshops and tasty soul food. In addition, there will be a variety educational institutions, apparel vendors, community based non-profits and a kid zone. So come on downtown to the Convention Center and have an enjoyable time with us.

Thank you in advance for your support and partnership.
