2024 Folsom Juneteenth Educational Symposium and BBQ

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


Join us as we share our story part of the Modern Juneteenth Movement responsible for our National Juneteenth Holiday.

Public celebrations of Folsom Juneteenth have a very profound history that showcases our unique California Journey from Slavery to Freedom; before, during and after our US Civil War, to include our part in the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom.

This year marks our 175th Anniversary of the year 1849, highpoint of our California Gold Rush, 1848-1855.  The City of Folsom is celebrated as a transportation hub for our regional California Gold Country and beyond.

The City of Folsom, County of Sacramento and State of California continues to align public policy with our new Federal Juneteenth Holiday in a good way.

Folsom Faith-Based, Business and Community leaders are asked to come participate in our education and advocacy event.

We have demonstrated uncommon patience that remains an essential requirement we share our authentic Juneteenth story to include 1,918 US Colored Troops from California who served during our US Civil War (1861-1865)

We must continue to serve and help “form a more perfect union” ~ freedom is never free… somebody always pays the price.

Save the Date:  11:30, am Friday, June 7, 2024 at Folsom City Park, Folsom Juneteenth Educational Symposium and BBQ.
