This is the African American Community Service Agency's 39th year producing the Juneteenth in the Park Festival in San Jose,. For over 38 years, the Juneteenth Festival in San Jose/Silicon Valley has averaged over 6,000 attendees. Entertainment has ranged from artists like Case, Jaguar Wright, Jon B., Reuben Studdard, and Brandy to groups like the Drifters with a wide range of local artists from Rap/Hip Hop to R&B, Gospel, and Jazz. Our wide variety of food, artwork, retailers, community services and local businesses have been a major draw for event attendees. This year our festival was faced with canceling, but we decided to pivot to virtual to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our festival embraces educating the community on a diverse range of information from voting, census, Black economic empowerment, positive images, social justice, family oriented programs, and Juneteenth history. We are a family-oriented festival with a variety of activities suitable for all ages.Read our FAQ guide
