Juneteenth Celebration at the West Broad Farmers Market
Jun 18 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Juneteenth is the oldest national celebration of the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States. Recognizing Juneteenth is more important now than ever as we are coming up on the two-year anniversary of a summer of protests, demonstrations, and a reckoning of how systemic racism continues to plague our society and systems of oppression continue to hurt Black Americans.
The West Broad Market & Garden worked with the community to create one of Athens’ first celebrations of Juneteenth starting in 2012. Since then awareness of the significance of Juneteenth and of Jubilee Day has grown throughout Athens, resulting in a number of important community celebrations that create opportunities for Athenians to come together. This has been an important tenet of the work of the West Broad Market & Garden to bring people together to support positive growth for our community – through health, wellness, economic opportunity, and civic engagement. The West Broad Farmers Market’s Juneteenth Celebration is a day of reflection, but also a day to celebrate African-American freedom, achievement, and culture!
We invite everyone to join us on Saturday, June 18th from 11 AM to 2 PM at Rocksprings Park & Community Center for an exciting lineup of cultural activities, live music, and performances at the 2022 Juneteenth Celebration!
