Juneteenth Day Celebration

9 a.m.-6 p.m.
If you’d never before heard of Juneteenth Day but happened upon Martin Luther King Jr. Drive on June 19, you could easily believe that you’d forgotten it was the Fourth of July. The annual commemoration of emancipation is celebrated with particular enthusiasm in Milwaukee, so these four long blocks between Burleigh and Center fill up with a parade and thousands of people as dancers take to the streets and the smell of barbecue fills the air. This year’s festivities include a parade, live music, a variety of family friendly activities and plenty of food.
