Elmira Juneteenth Celebration

June 18 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A community event filled with artists and crafters, celebrating the spirit of Juneteenth! Each year features demonstrations of poetry, dance and other talents from a variety of cultures, many of which include audience participation.

Juneteenth, the oldest known African-American celebration in the U.S., commemorates the final emancipation of slaves in Texas in 1865. The spirit of Juneteenth encompasses self-improvement, family, and economic unity. The Elmira Juneteenth Celebration takes place annually and provides the opportunity for local artisans to showcase their talents to a diverse population and for local organizations and service to providers to disseminate information to their community.
