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
