Description:

This is the African American Community Service Agency's 39th year producing the Juneteenth in the Park Festival in San Jose. 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.
