Juneteenth in the Streets Festival 2022
June 12 - June 18
announce and host the 41st Annual Juneteenth in the Park Festival, now reimagined and relocated. This year the Juneteenth experience will be “Juneteenth in the Streets Festival” featuring a week of events beginning on Sunday, June 12, 2022, culminating with the Juneteenth in the Street Festival on Saturday, June 18, 2022, from 12:00pm to 7:00pm in the Downtown San Jose SoFA District.
For over 40 years, the Juneteenth in the Park Festival has been a pillar of San Jose and Silicon Valley. The Festival celebrates June 19th (Juneteenth), the oldest celebration of the end of slavery in the country, dating back to its abolition in 1865. On September 22, 2020, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to adopt Resolution 102918, becoming the first county in the State of California to recognize Juneteenth as a paid holiday. Further, the Festival celebrates African American heritage, immerses the community at large in Black culture, and provides exposure for and awareness of local food vendors, artists, musicians, businesses, and community services.
