Philadelphia Juneteenth Musicfest and Parade
Freedom Fought | Freedom Won
This year’s 2017 Universal Juneteenth Parade and Festival had more than 1,000 participants. In attendance were two kings from Ghana, a United States Congressman, two Pennsylvania Mayors, State Senators, State Representatives, the Philadelphia Police Chief, Prince Hall Masons and a host of Councilpersons and Dignitaries. Parade participants came from different states along the northeastern coast, from New York City to Washington D.C., to the delight of over 7,000 spectators for our second year.
An overwhelming community outcry has led The Philadelphia Community of Leaders to announce for the third year The Philadelphia Juneteenth Musicfest and Parade. The event will take place from Friday, June 22nd to Saturday, June 23rd, 2018.
