Celebrating Juneteenth in Atlanta

by Margaret Willard

Celebrated annually on June 19, Juneteenth commemorates the date that enslaved Black Americans in the United States were declared free. Also known as “America’s second Independence Day,” it has been recognized in parts of the U.S. since 1865 but only just became a federal holiday in 2021.

Throughout metro Atlanta, there are many events taking place where attendees of all ages can learn about and celebrate the holiday, including:

Juneteenth Atlanta Parade & Music Festival

Atlanta History Center’s Jubilee on the Lawn

City of Fulton Juneteenth Celebration

Acworth’s Concert on the Green: A Juneteenth Celebration
