Have you been to Atlanta History Center’s Juneteenth celebration before? Well, this year, they’re bringing back their in-person Juneteenth event after two years of virtual activations due to the pandemic. Juneteenth has been celebrated annually in the U.S. since the momentous date, June 19, 1865, that marked the end of enslavement in the United States.
This year’s event at AHC will feature a series of curated experiences leading visitors across campus to explore the history of Juneteenth itself and Black innovation, life, and excellence since emancipation in Atlanta. This event is free and appropriate for all ages. You can register HERE.
From films about the history of Juneteenth to exhibits, demonstrations, and storytelling about life in Atlanta, there are enough activities to keep you busy throughout the day. I can’t wait for my kids to experience this year’s event and learn about Black history in this unique way.
The festivities will take place from 9 a.m.-to 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 19. There will also be a party on the Swan House lawn including live music, art, activities, games, food, and drinks beginning at noon. Bring the family and celebrate Juneteenth (and Father’s Day) with us!
Don’t just visit for the free Juneteenth event, I strongly recommend another visit so you can take your time to see all that Atlanta History Center has to offer. Use my code TITI20 for 20% off your tickets on your next visit! You can find other posts highlighting AHC HERE.
