Juneteenth 2022

Juneteenth is actually June 19th, but this most recent Federal Holiday, is celebrated this year on June 20th. Although the federal holiday is new, first recognized in 2021, it had been recognized ever since the June 19, 1865, event it commemorates.

Juneteenth has only be mentioned in two patents: U.S Patent No. 8,136,962, and 11,281,738. However, on the trademark side, things have been more active — particularly recently. There are 36 pending applications and issued registrations on marks including the term JUNETEENTH, 33 of which were filed in the last three years. Trademark filings remain a good indicator of what’s on peoples’ minds — and right now its Juneteenth.
