Juneteenth, the historically recognized celebration marking the end of slavery in the United States, began in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865. The event has grown into an international phenomenon celebrated in Mexico, Central America and parts of the Caribbean.

The Fresno Juneteenth Celebration Committee has been commemorating the event for more than 30 years. Following the 2022 success, this year’s celebration will again span five days, June 15–19. Each day will offer attendees different experiences marking the occasion.

Join the anticipated 8,000–10,000 visitors. For more information, contact the event director, Janice Sumler, at fresnojuneteenth@gmail.com or 559-375-1880.
