Juneteenth Festival

The Juneteenth Festival of Buffalo began in 1976 as a culturally-relevant alternative to the country’s Bicentennial Celebration. Murals were painted and vendors set up booths to sell ethnic foods and wares — entertainment and festivity were abundant. The event has grown tremendously, with the mission to actively preserve and promote the broad spectrum of African American heritage through educational and cultural activities that will benefit the community as a whole.
