Event Description

Remember the fun we had last year?  Well it's time to do it again.  The Juneteenth Heritage Festival rolls into Leimert Park June 16 & 17, 10am to 6pm each day.  Our theme this year, "Faith, Family and the Future."

 Lots of fun for the whole family.  Admission is FREE - Come on out and Celebrate Freedom. 

We are pleased to announce that BALA will collaborate with Manchester Community Technologies (MCT), the Production House, and Arts & Culture Entertainment (ACE), to launch the Leimert Park Vision Network Wi-Fi System which will provide FREE internet access for businesses, residents and visitors to Leimert Park.

We'll play traditional games like bid whist, spades and bones.  Choose from a menu of the best healthy delicacies and BBQ.  Enjoy Line dancing, Square dancing, and a Cowboy of Color or two. Groove to live entertainment and kids; there’ll be fun for you.  “Lights! Camera! Action! with Linda Long” returns this year plus face painting, make-n-take,  rock wall climbing and more.

We're gonna reach way back and rock an old school Soul Train line to honor Don Cornelius and Whitney, then reach even further back to call our ancestors by name.  Shop for your June Brides, Grads and Dads.  Daily fashion shows with flair, Gospel music in the air, and Praise dancing everywhere.

The Minority Aids Project sponsors the Health Ark in the Park, while first class artists and award winning hand crafters will be showcasing their wares until dark. 

Space is limited, so go to www.blackartslosangeles.org  to apply to be a vendor.  Call 323/291-2024 for more information.   See you there!
