Juneteenth Music Festival

Where: Five Pints neighborhood
When: June 18,19 & 20th

Denver’s annual Juneteenth celebration has been one of the largest in the country, and unites traditional ethnic foods, artwork, crafts and music along Denver’s historic Five Points business corridor (on Welton Street).

Juneteenth celebrates the day African Americans in Texas learned of their freedom two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Celebrated in cities across the country, Denver is home to the Juneteenth Music Festival, a dynamic community event which annually attracts 50,000 people. In 2021, Juneteenth was recognized as a commemorative holiday by Denver City Council.
