One hundred and fifty-three years ago, Union Soldiers read the Emancipation Proclamation, announcing that slaves were free. During this special weekend, you’ll be able to take part in a celebration of freedom and civil rights.

Juneteenth in Syracuse – a Celebration of Freedom

Why should you come to Syracuse to celebrate this event? Juneteenth in Syracuse is one of the largest celebrations of this event in the nation!

During your time in Downtown Syracuse, you’ll get to enjoy a number of Juneteenth celebrations. These include a free performance by R&B award-winning singer/songwriter Chanté Moore.

The goal of this event is not only to celebrate emancipation – it’s to ensure that everyone continues to have a share in maintaining racial and ethnic equality and opportunities.

That’s why – in addition to free entertainment – the festival also includes culturally diverse cuisine and educational exhibits.
