The Old Globe, in collaboration with the George L. Stevens Senior Center, will also present a fifth annual Juneteenth Celebration performance presentation as part of the Center’s annual Juneteenth festival event. Audiences are invited to join the celebration on Saturday, June 19 from noon to 1:15 p.m. in the Globe’s outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. This year’s event will feature a cabaret presentation of artists, including the San Diego Black Artist Collective, all sharing performance pieces inspired by the annual holiday. In addition, an invitation-only Juneteenth event, part of the coLAB series, and managed by the Senior Center, will take place on their campus the day prior featuring a similar lineup. Juneteenth—also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day, and Emancipation Day—is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States.

Though the AXIS and Juneteenth Celebration events are free, tickets are required. For all arts engagement events after June 15, please check our website calendar for ticketing availability dates.

Tickets available on the website are limited to two tickets per order, and guests will be seated in the theatre in these groups of two, socially distanced from other groups. For orders of four tickets that can be seated together, please call our Ticket Services Department at (619) 234-5623.
