Sacramento Juneteenth, Inc will host its 18th Annual Juneteenth Festival on June 19, 2021 in William Land Park. Juneteenth is the national celebration of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Nearly 8,000 people attend this 2-day event. As part of this year’s festival we will host the Arts and Education Pavilion. We’re seeking youth (high school) and adult artists to submit original pieces to participate in a Juneteenth-themed art exhibition. Three artists will be selected to participate.
Selected artists will display their pieces in the Pavilion with Juneteenth staff selecting the winning pieces. Winning participants will be awarded cash prizes and recognized during the event program. Those not selected for the exhibit may still have an opportunity to display their art in the pavilion.
