Join an afternoon of free food, live entertainment, and unique vendor shopping in honor of the African-American Holiday of Juneteenth. Purple Party Designs will be selling a wide assortment of handmade jewelry during the celebration. The Juneteenth holiday celebrates the freeing of the enslaved peoples in Galveston Texas, in 1865, two years after Abraham Lincoln read the Emancipation Proclamation. Musical Headliners for the day include Kippy Marks and Charlotte Crossley.
The event is sponsored by Yolo County Library, Friends of the Davis Public Library, Culture C.O.-O.P., University California at Davis, Travis Credit Union, First Northern Bank, Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District, the Davis Food CO-OP, and Nugget Markets.
