Juneteenth Week @ Genesee Country Village & Museum

June 12-15, 2024
Juneteenth Week @ Genesee Country Village & Museum

Celebrating Freedom’s Ring as we honor Juneteenth! Join us for our fourth annual event honoring Juneteenth – this year encompassing a whole week’s worth of programming! Wednesday, June 12 - Saturday, June 15 | 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Juneteenth is considered the oldest celebration of the end of enslavement in the United States – and an official state holiday here in New York! We will spotlight the events, experiences, and people fundamental to our collective understanding and appreciation of freedom. The holiday is inspired by events that occurred on June 19, 1865, when Union troops brought the message of emancipation and the end of the Civil War to over 250,000 enslaved persons in Texas – more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. These messengers of freedom were met with shock and jubilation.

Follow the history of emancipation
General Order No. 3 brought word of emancipation and the end of the Civil War to over 250,000 enslaved people in Texas on June 19, 1865 – more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Visit the Print Shop to further explore this story!

Experience culinary traditions
As you make your way through homes in the Village, learn from costumed historic cooks about the culinary traditions surrounding Juneteenth celebrations and see (and taste!) receipts by Malinda Russell, the first known female African American published cookbook author. Don’t forget to stop by the D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery to buy confections using her recipes!

GCV&M Member admission is FREE and guaranteed for this event.
