San Jose Juneteenth in the Park

The weekend of June 14th - 15th, come to San Jose's Juneteenth in the Park, a festival featuring live entertainment, food, vendors, and a youth arena. Yes, it is Father's Day weekend, but this is a family event, so don't let that stop you!

Juneteenth is a celebration that commemorates the ending of slavery in the U.S. and San Jose's festival, which is presented by the San Jose African American Community Services Agency and the Silicon Valley Black Chamber of Commerce, is one of the longest running in the Bay Area.

Saturday's headliner is R&B singer Kenny Lattimore, and he will perform at 6:15 pm; R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan is Sunday's headliner, and she will go on at 5 pm. 

On Saturday, June 14th, the festival hours are from 12 - 7 pm; on Sunday, June 15th, the hours are 11 am - 6 pm. Admission is $7 each day; children 12 and under are free.

Be advised that the price will go up to $10 at 4 pm on both Saturday and Sunday, so keep that in mind if you plan to arrive later in the day.

    Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know that I'm NOT the host for today's (Sunday, June 15th) Juneteenth Festival. I apologize if there was any confusion. So for anyone who shows up today, you'll have to coordinate a way to meet other YBB members who are also in attendance.

      Thanks for hosting yesterday, Astrid! For those coming today, if you have trouble finding anyone else from the group, I'm working at the information booth to the left of the stage (if you're facing it). Feel free to come say hi!

    In order to identify me, I have on a blue dress that's white at the bottom.

    Hello everyone! I'm probably going to be a couple of minutes late since I'm coming from Marin (so probably 15 minutes late). Call or text me at (415)[masked] if you're lost.

    FYI - If you can, bring a lawn chair or blanket...you might get tired of standing after a while.

    So the plan for tomorrow is to meet close to the entrance inside of the event (I'm not sure how the layout for the festival will be so I can't give you an exact description until tomorrow). The best way to keep up with the group's whereabouts is through the Meetup app on your smartphone. I'll be using the app to describe where we are, what I'm wearing, etc. Also, you can call or text me at (415) 713-4293. I'm looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow!

    Just wanted to point out the addition of Kenny Lattimore as Saturday's headliner...he'll be performing at 6:15 pm.

      I forgot to ask but will there be plenty of tickets at the door or is there a way to buy them in advance?

      June 12, 2014

    • Muriel I.

      There will be plenty of tickets at the door. I can't promise that you'll be able to pay using a credit/debit card, so bring cash to make things easier. There will be an ATM on site, though, and there is a Chase bank nearby on Santa Clara St. PLEASE NOTE: I've been advised that the price will go up to $10 at 4 pm both days for those people only coming to see the headliners, so you if you plan to come later in the day, get there before 4 to save a few bucks.

    Hello everyone! I hope all is well. I will be the host for this event. On Friday I will message everyone who has RSVP'd and provide you with information on how to find the group.

      Thanks, Astrid! See you Saturday :-)
