Fourth Annual Juneteenth Parade and Jamboree
Gettysburg Rec Park, 545 Long Lane
Gettysburg, PA

Juneteenth is the day African American families, friends, and allies come together to celebrate Black Liberation marked by the ending of enslavement in the United States of America. This tradition was started by newly freed enslaved Blacks in Texas in 1865. Today, Black communities around the country use this date to host family reunions and have community-wide celebrations.

Holding a community Juneteenth celebration has become a Gettysburg experience brought to fruition by Indigenous Glow which believes such a celebration contributes to a local appreciation of Black Lives and offers an opportunity for the community to come together in support of African Americans in Adams County.

The Parade begins at Noon at Lincoln Square. Wear comfortable clothing, follow road rules and stay on sidewalks.  All black flags and signs are welcome that promote uplifting Black Lives.

The Jamboree begins at 1:30 PM and consists of an afternoon of music, children’s water fun, food, re-enactments, ethnic vendors, and much more.

Guests include Mama Gail (Steward-Clouden), universal love priestess; Mike Africa Jr., and host Reg Duzit. There will be music by Sydney Moon and Elay Echavarria, plus re-enactments by Malika Lovelace as Alice McCoy and Sheila Supenski as Lydia Hamilton.

Join in the fun at the Gettysburg Recreation Park, 545 Long Lane, Gettysburg.
