What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth is an important day in American History as it marks June 19, 1865, when the last enslaved African Americans in the rebelling states were notified that the Emancipation Proclamation would be enforced, announcing their legal freedom.

This is State College's fifth commemoration. Join us for food, music and dance during this fabulous festival. Be sure to save the date, invite friends, and family to attend the events. Juneteenth National Independence Day Act, establishes Juneteenth as a federal holiday in 2021 and the first to obtain legal observance as a federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

We look forward to creating a vibrant and inclusive community as we
commemorate and celebrate Juneteenth.
