Juneteenth Day, which commemorates the end of slavery, is celebrated in cities across the United States, but Milwaukee’s celebration is one of the largest and oldest in the country. Since 1971, Juneteenth in Milwaukee has grown larger each year and the community doesn’t hold anything back. In fact, according to the City of Milwaukee’s records, it is the oldest known and longest-running annual Juneteenth celebration in the United States.

Celebrate with food, speakers, live music, and, of course, one of the largest Juneteenth parades in the country. No matter who you are or where you come from, this important celebration is one that you will not want to miss.
