Juneteenth Celebration

« All Events

June 19, 2021 at 1:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free

Juneteenth celebrates enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation reaching the westernmost Confederate state of Texas. The Proclamation went into effect in 1863, but this news was purposefully withheld from enslaved people until the arrival of Union troops in Galveston Bay, Texas on June 19, 1865.

Juneteenth marks our country’s second independence day.

Join Henrico Recreation & Parks at Dorey Park for fireworks, live music performances (feat. Plunky & Oneness and Bak N Da Day), food trucks, a vendor fair, live history interpreters, and games for kids.

Interested in being a vendor? Please complete the Juneteenth Vendor Application and return by email to juneteenth@henrico.us.
