Welcome to the 2015 Southwest Louisiana (SWLA) Juneteenth Celebration in Lafayette, Louisiana.

The mission of the SWLA Juneteenth Committee is to commemorate the ending of slavery in the United States by celebrating the joys of liberty, educating the community about African American heritage, and by promoting positive cultural interaction.

From 1865 to 2015, we have the pleasure to celebrate 150 years of Freedom!

Please browse our site for more information on the events we have planned for Summer 2015, including but not limited to youth essay and poster contest, pageant and banquet, and Father’s Day Fest.

We do hope you will celebrate with us! Choose below to learn more about our events.


Thank you to our 2015 sponsors!
