The Town of Morrisville is thrilled to announce its annual Juneteenth event celebration on June 10, 2023, from 11AM to 3PM. The event, which commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States, will take place at Cedar Fork Community Center, 1050B Town Hall Drive, in Morrisville

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, marks the day in 1865 when Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and announced that all enslaved people were free, two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. Juneteenth has since become a national holiday and a symbolic day to honor the resilience, strength, and achievements of Black Americans throughout history.

The event will feature a wide range of activities and entertainment, including signature presentations by the US Colored Troops, live music performances, art exhibitions, food vendors, cultural displays, a kid’s corner, and health & wellness awareness booths, featuring Shepherd's Care Medical Clinic,the energetic Zumba Camp and more. There will also be opportunities to learn about the history and significance of Juneteenth through educational exhibits and presentations. We expect to attract a diverse audience of all ages, including families, community leaders, and local dignitaries.

The event is open to everyone. Bring the whole family and enjoy a day of fun-filled activities, including games, arts and crafts, face painting, and more. Families are also encouraged to bring their friends, and neighbors to join in the festivities. The Town of Morrisville Juneteenth Committee also invites local businesses, community groups, and organizations to participate in the event and showcase their products, services, and initiatives.
