Celebrate Juneteenth!

We are closed on Juneteenth.
Want to celebrate? Here's some great options!

There are so many ways to celebrate and honor Juneteenth.

Here are just a few in the Baltimore area - we know we missed a lot. If you have one you want to add, please add it in the comments!

Reservoir Hill Juneteenth Celebration

June 19th

10:30 am - 4:30 pm

German Park 2411 Linden Ave

 

Building on the tenets of collective impact, the Reservoir Hill Juneteenth Celebration will engage neighbors, harness hope, and foster innovative and inclusive exchanges. Juneteenth is designed to support the healing journey of neighbors and families as we commemorate the end of slavery, reflect on the current state of Black America, and envision future freedoms. The community will be exposed to resources including financial literacy and homebuyer’s education, cultural arts, and traditional and alternative therapy services. In addition to offering social service resources, residents will have the opportunity to exchange stories of strength and resilience through poetry, live performances, and facilitated workshops.

 

The Reservoir Hill Juneteenth Celebration is for everyone who wants to celebrate black history and shape our future with intention and hope. The community is tapping into the talents of Baltimore City’s creators and producers. There will be plenty of opportunities to experience the day through art, food, and music. While this day is meant to be a celebration for all, we are emphasizing health and safety as we continue to battle the Covid-19 pandemic.
