17th Annual Las Vegas Juneteenth Festival


If you and your friends and family are in the mood for some festive fun, entertainment, shopping, historical story telling, and good food then you may want to check out the Juneteeth Festival on Monday, June 19th, 2017 at the Sammy Davis, Jr. Festival Plaza in Lorenzi Park. For those of you not in the know, Juneteeth “Celebration of Freedom Weekend” is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. It was on June 19, 1865 some two and half years after the Emancipation Proclamation that news broke to those Americans in Texas that the war had ended and the enslaved were now free. Since then generations upon generations of African Americans along with other ethnic communities have commemorated the day as one of reflection, faith, renewal, community and cultural pride.
