24th Annual, Folsom Juneteenth Celebration – Reclaiming Our Past

June 7 @ 11:30 am - 4:30 pm PDT

Free

In 2000, Joe Louis Moore led the way to establish public Folsom Juneteenth event that was chosen by the National Park Service to be included in their National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Project, one of only two projects in California to be selected for that honor.

In 2006, Michael Harris picked up the Folsom Juneteenth banner and continues to spread our newest National Holiday throughout the California Gold Mining Districts and beyond.

Our 2024 Folsom Juneteenth Education Symposium and Juneteenth BBQ features the esteemed Dr. Gearld Higginbotham as our guest and keynote speaker.  Our “family friendly” touch to showcase our unique California Journey from Slavery to Freedom utilizes authentic primary source documents and nearly a quarter century of local collaboration with our diverse local community members.
