Here Is A List of Juneteenth Events Happening This Weekend In Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA–Los Angeles County will host celebrations throughout the weekend to honor Juneteenth, the federal holiday commemorating the emancipation of African-Americans enslaved in the United States. Juneteenth is now an official holiday in the City of Los Angeles, after a proclamation signed recently by Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The proclamation comes after Ninth District City Councilman Curren Price introduced a motion that won an unanimous vote by the L.A City Council, to officially acknowledge Juneteenth. Price introduced the motion in 2020, at the height of civil unrest following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota, which saw increased demands for police reform and calls to address structural racism facing African-Americans.
