Donaldsonville is set to celebrate its 29th Annual Juneteenth Festival. It will be held on Saturday, June 15, 2024 from 11am – 7pm at the Louisiana Square in Donaldsonville, LA. Come out, bring your family, chairs, and umbrella and listen to the sounds of South Louisiana musicians, learn the Juneteenth history, enjoy the delicious cuisine of our local vendors, shop, stop by our health fair focused on African-Health and get vaccinated. Donaldsonville residents can sign up for Red Cross smoke detector installation and drive through our Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank non-perishable food distribution. RAIN or SHINE! The City of Donaldsonville and the festival committee have carried on the Juneteenth Festival tradition locally since its inception in 1996. Started by former Donaldsonville Mayor the late B.J. Francis Sr. and his late wife, Janet Ganes Francis, it was continued through the efforts of the River Road African American Museum and other volunteers in the community.
