Commemorate Juneteenth – an American celebration that marks the end of slavery in the United States. Although the name springs from events that happened in Galveston, Texas, in 1865, the origins date to Jamestown as the place where the first recorded Africans in 1619 were brought after landing at Old Point Comfort and where the first slavery laws enacted in the late 17th century impacted their lives and status.

In this thought-provoking 90-minute outdoor program of performance, music and dance, meet African Americans from three centuries who fought against those laws until freedom came.

Juneteenth programs are included with Jamestown Settlement admission, but tickets to this limited-capacity event must be purchased in advance to reserve a seat. Buy Tickets.
