Virginia Avenue Park hosts a jubilant celebration of justice and liberty in commemoration of the announcement of the emancipation of enslaved African Americans who lived in the former Confederacy - two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

The theme for this year's Juneteenth is "Unity for a Purpose", honoring African American freedom and achievement, while encouraging continuous self development and respect for all cultures.

The festival includes a cultural arts marketplace and food trucks.
