Juneteenth Santa Barbara welcomes the community at large to the fifth year of celebrating Juneteenth in Santa Barbara. The free block party celebration will be on Sunday, June 19, 2022, from 12 pm to 5 pm, in historically Black Santa Barbara also known as the Funk Zone!
On the 200 block of Gray Avenue in Santa Barbara, the celebration includes, free food for up to 200 people at Shalhoobs Funk Zone Patio, local live performances, the return of the Black/African American Artisan Market, a kids zone with Princess Tiana from Princess & the Frog and so much more! As the celebration coincides with Father’s Day, the event will acknowledge the caregivers in our lives. As we are still in the realm of COVID-19 we request that social distancing rules apply to this outdoor, in-person event.
Coming to the stage for this event is local Black talent, Vivian Storm, Miriam Dance, Talitha Garbielle, The Knew Vibe, Sojourner Kincaid Rolle, DJ Tim Stone, and MC Jacquelyn Chin.
