Juneteenth Celebration 2022

June 18, 2022 at 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

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.

Learn more about Juneteenth’s history and traditions.


On Saturday, June 18, join Henrico Recreation & Parks at Dorey Park for a vendor fair, kids zone, food trucks, and entertainment, including fireworks! FREE and open to the public! No registration needed.
