Juneteenth Celebration

The Rosa Parks Museum is excited to be able to once again host its annual Juneteenth celebration on Saturday, June 19, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in downtown Montgomery in the 200 block of Montgomery Street.
The event is free and open to the public and includes local food and merchant vendors, live music, and complimentary tours of the museum. We will also be following the CDC's guidelines for hosting safe events. We will update you as we learn more about what those protocols will be.
Juneteenth, observed on June 19, is the oldest known commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Our goal is to commemorate Juneteenth by celebrating African American freedom with a focus on education, achievement, and bringing people together from all walks of life to honestly recognize our shared history while embracing the African American experience, regardless of race, nationality, religion, socioeconomic status.
If you are interested in becoming a vendor for Juneteenth, please contact Ashley Redic at aredic@troy.edu or 334.241.5815.
