The City of Santa Monica will host the 32nd Annual Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday, June 15, 2024, from 3 to 7 PM at Virginia Avenue Park. The free, family-friendly event will feature an afternoon of music, unique food and craft vendors, a community stage, and local resources. Karla Diaz, the featured artist in our current exhibition Karla Diaz: Wait ‘til Your Mother Gets Home, will be leading an arts and crafts table for the public to engage with. Known as America’s 2nd Independence Day, Juneteenth has been celebrated in Santa Monica since 1992 thanks to LaVerne Ross when she approached the City to commemorate the holiday that her family celebrated in Texas.

Juneteenth is produced in partnership with the Santa Monica Juneteenth Celebration Committee, Inc. For complete event details, visit:  https://www.santamonica.gov/events/4xjmzy8gt3krqxqmsnkzys8j4t/202406151500
