Juneteenth Family Day
June 17 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Celebrate this important holiday marking the end of slavery by delving deep into Black history at Green-Wood!
Participate in free art activities with ASNEAA’s Community Legacy Project: make a legacy bracelet, contribute to the BIPOC Heritage Board, or decorate a kindness rock to take home or leave at a grave.
Price: Free. Registration recommended.
Families can also take a self-guided tour of the gravesites of fascinating Black historical figures. Maps and biographies of featured burial sites will be available when you enter the Cemetery, and our trolley will run on a loop to all sites so folks can hop on and off as they please.
For this event, please enter the Cemetery through the Fort Hamilton Parkway Entrance (Fort Hamilton Parkway and Micieli Place). Craft activities and tour materials can be found there.
And check out our free walking event with Outdoor Afro happening this same day!
Free. Registration is recommended, but not required. Please consider a donation to the Green-Wood Historic Fund so that we can continue to offer free and low-cost programs throughout the year.
