Juneteenth Day


Juneteenth is celebrated in cities across the United States to commemorate the emancipation of slaves in 1865. Milwaukee’s Juneteenth Day Celebration is a community-wide event that takes place on historic King Drive between Center St and Burleigh Ave. The event is organized as a street festival with various family-friendly activities taking place over the course of a day. The annual summer block party encourages all to attend and join in the festivities, which include live music, kids’ games, exhibits, soul food and more.
