Welcome to the Attleboro Juneteenth Celebration

About Us: The Attleboro Juneteenth Celebration is part of the Southeast Juneteenth Coalition, a collaborative effort involving the National Black Doll Museum, Bristol Black Collective, African American Heritage Association Of Brockton, and Black Lives Matter R.I. Our coalition is dedicated to commemorating Juneteenth, the historic day marking the end of slavery in America, and promoting awareness of its historical significance.

Juneteenth: A Second Independence Day Although Juneteenth (June 19) has long been celebrated in the African American community, many Americans are still unaware of its significance. This day, commemorating the end of slavery in America, has been recognized as a Massachusetts state holiday and a federal holiday since 2021. However, separate celebrations in various cities and towns have often had small attendance compared to the effort required to organize them.

Our Mission: In our fifth year of planning, the Juneteenth Committees of Attleboro, Fall River and Brockton have joined forces to form the Southeast Juneteenth Coalition. Our goal is to create an annual cultural event that honors and shares the legacy of African Americans through celebration. We aim to promote economic and community empowerment, share ideas and resources, and encourage smaller municipalities to enhance their own celebrations.

Join Us in Celebrating Juneteenth! We invite you to join us in celebrating Juneteenth and the rich history of African Americans. Our event will feature exhibits, speakers, performers, activities, and more, with a focus on economic and community empowerment. Together, let’s honor Juneteenth as a day of freedom and unity.

Event Details: Dates: Saturday, June 8, 2024 Time: 11 am – 6 pm Location: Heritage Park,  Fall River, MA
