5th Annual

LAKEFEST

In 2018, Lakefest Oakland debuted as Northern California’s newest daytime summer festival with an emphasis on celebrating community and culture, and celebrating Juneteenth. This wonderfully diverse summertime gala adorns the nature-rich, three-mile shoreline of Lake Merritt in The City of Oakland and has quickly become one of the Bay Area’s most highly anticipated outdoor events attracting over 20,000 attendees in 2023.

Celebrating All Month Long

JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION

On June 17, 2021, President Biden signed into law a long over due Senate Bill making “Juneteenth” a federal holiday.

The name, “Juneteenth,” is in reference to June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers reached Galveston, Texas and announced that the Civil War was over and the enslaved were now free. While the Emancipation Proclamation was signed into law in 1863, it effectively had zero legal impact since the Confederacy had seceded from the Union. As a result enslaved Blacks remained in bondage 2 years after President Lincoln sign the proclamation.
