This is the African American Community Service Agency's 41st year producing the Juneteenth in the Park Festival in San Jose. For over 40 years, the Juneteenth Festival in San Jose/Silicon Valley has averaged over 6,000 attendees.
Entertainment has ranged from artists like Anthony Hamilton, Case, Faith Evans, Ledisi, Jon B., Reuben Studdard, and Brandy to groups like the Drifters with a wide range of local artists from Rap/Hip Hop to R&B, Gospel, and Jazz. Our wide variety of food, artwork, retailers, community services and local businesses have been a major draw for event attendees. The Festival celebrates African American heritage and is an opportunity to educate the community on topics ranging from health to educational and financial literacy.
This year, as the community is re-emerging after a long year of struggle, celebrating our resilience together will be especially meaningful.
