with a Day of Community and Delicious Food

Details: Celebrate local Black-owned businesses at Juneteenth on the Waterfront on Saturday, June 19!

For the first time, Juneteenth will be celebrated at the Embarcadero. The event will spotlight local Black producers, celebratory Juneteenth foods, music, and learning opportunities.

MegaBlackSF has also created an online store with special-edition educational materials, a Juneteenth Family Kit and branded merchandise to celebrate the occasion. MegaBlack SF will have an educational booth to explain the importance of Juneteenth.>The event will take place concurrently with CUESA’s Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, which brings thousands of San Franciscans and visitors to the Ferry Building every Saturday.

Participating Businesses and Community Partners

A number of Ferry Plaza Farmers Market vendors will also be donating a portion of their proceeds to the MegaBlack SF Black Wellness Fund.

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, celebrates the anniversary of Black emancipation in the United States, honored on the anniversary of June 19, 1865, when freedom from slavery was proclaimed in the state of Texas.
