Please join the City as we host our first Juneteenth Commemoration on

In 2020, the Council adopted Resolution 1992, declaring that Juneteenth will be recognized every year in Tukwila as a celebration of emancipation and an opportunity to honor African Americans in our community through continued learning and understanding of the impacts of slavery.

We hope that you will join the City on this journey of continued learning and honoring the lives of African American History: Past, Present and Future. This year’s event will be a pre-recorded event due the coronavirus pandemic. Our goal is to grow the Juneteenth Commemoration over time into an annual Tukwila Community event.

The pre-recorded event will be available on starting on June 19 at 11:00am.
