The City of Carson and the Carson Citizens Cultural Arts Foundation will be presenting non-stop entertainment and many fun activities for the entire family as we host the 2022 Juneteenth Rhythm and Blues Celebration, which this year will feature special tributes to Marvin Gaye and Al Green.
The festivities will take place on June 18 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Mills Park, 1340 E. Dimondale Dr. in the City of Carson. The event is free and open to the public.
Headlining this year’s event is Calloway, an R&B duo formerly Midnight Star. They had a major hit in 1990 with “I Wanna Be Rich” and a multi-platinum album, “No Parking on the Dance Floor” in 1983. Other performers for the all-day music festival include Greg Rose and the Greg Rose Orchestra, Biscuits and Gravy, Patrick Bolton of the City of Refuge, African Cultural Research Study Group, and DJ Alcatraz.
“On behalf of all the citizens of the great City of Carson, I extend my sincerest appreciation to the Carson Citizens Cultural Arts Foundation for their exceptional dedication in ensuring a successful event each year to celebrate this important day in American history and I extend a heartfelt welcome to all our guests,” said Carson Mayor Lula Davis-Holmes.
Aside from non-stop entertainment, Juneteenth also features various stage activities, teen fun zone, and a variety of arts and crafts, food and display booths.
