Berkeley Juneteenth Festival

When: Sun., June 24, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2012

We're Still Standing, the theme of this year's Juneteenth Festival in South Berkeley, is a nod to the endurance of the annual celebration of African-American culture. The festival, the longest-running event of its kind in Northern California, is now in its 25th year, and continues its traditional offering of bountiful entertainment -- from live blues, jazz, and reggae to arts, crafts, and tons of food. This year, festivalgoers can look forward to a young-adult basketball tournament, clothing and jewelry vendors, and two stages of diverse music and dance performances including rapper-pianist Kev Choice (voted "Best Musician" by the Express in 2009) and the North Oakland Senior Center African Dancers. On Adeline St. between Ashby and Alcatraz aves.on Sunday, June 24. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., free. 510-655-8008 or BerkeleyJuneteenth.org
