View Kensington’s 2nd Annual Juneteenth Celebration PromoJuneteenrh Flyer 4 2023
Celebrated since 1865 and observed as a Federal Holiday since 2021, Juneteenth commemorates the date when some of the last enslaved people in the Confederacy were notified of their freedom following the Civil War.
Juneteenth Celebrations connect and strengthen communities with an emphasis on education, conversation, acknowledgement of our nation’s history, and the hope of building a better future together.
Kensington’s Juneteenth Celebration, a family friendly event with activities for all ages, will bring together a multiracial coalition of organizers, historians, re-enactors, civic and faith leaders, local and Black-owned businesses, musicians, and supporters to proudly mark Juneteenth.
In addition to joining the celebration on June 17th from 12-4pm at St. Paul Park (rain date June 18th), please consider making a donation in support of this community event.
