Juneteenth Celebration

Date: June 19, 2021
Time: 1:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Juneteenth celebrates news of the Emancipation Proclamation reaching the westernmost Confederate state of Texas. The Proclamation went into effect in 1863, but word did not make it to the westernmost Confederate-controlled territories 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.
