Henrico County’s Juneteenth Celebration

Saturday, June 15, 2024 at Dorey Park
Join Henrico Recreation & Parks for a vendor fair, kids zone, food trucks, and entertainment. FREE and open to the public!
If you have any questions, please call (804) 652-1421 or email [email protected].


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.

First flown in 2000, the Juneteenth flag was designed by Ben Haith, founder of the National Juneteenth Celebration.

We recommend guests take 295. Directions:

  • Take Exit 22 (Varina)

  • Turn left onto Darbytown Road and follow the direction of Henrico Police
  • Turn left into Dorey Park

Once in the park, please stay on pedestrian pathways and avoid walking on roadways.

At the conclusion of the event, please plan extra time to leave Dorey Park. Although Henrico County Staff will be assisting with traffic, there will be a lot of vehicles on the property.

Spots are limited, and we may be using a golf cart shuttle service to transport guests from reserved handicap parking to the event area.
