Juneteenth Philly, producer of the Philadelphia Juneteenth Parade and Festival, is excited to announce that we will host a series of events for the Juneteenth holiday.
Due to continued Covid restrictions we will not be able to produce our annual parade.  However we will host a series of events which will include the Philadelphia Juneteenth Freedom Day Float House Competition, Juneteenth Freedom Day March along 52nd Street to support a national holiday and Philadelphia’s first Juneteenth Freedom Day Exhibit in Malcolm X Park.
Stay tuned for further details.

Celebrate History
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth is the only holiday that commemorates the abolition of slavery; more specifically the emancipation of enslaved Africans throughout the United States of America. Pennsylvania now permanently recognizes Juneteenth, as a state holiday. Governor Tom Wolf on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 signed legislation designating June 19 as Juneteenth National Freedom Day in Pennsylvania.

“Juneteenth is an event that has a unique cultural and historical significance, both here in Philadelphia and across the country. The City is proud to partner with the Philadelphia Juneteenth Parade and Festival.” – Mayor James F. Kenney
