Welcome to the 2016 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 2016, we have the pleasure to celebrate 151 years of Freedom!
