Head to the Seneca Village site in Central Park this Juneteenth for a family-friendly celebration of Black culture and accomplishment. Enjoy performances by world-renowned artists as they interpret the fascinating history and significance of Juneteenth and Seneca Village through dance, poetry, music, storytelling, art activities, and more!
Juneteenth in Seneca Village offers an opportunity to not only consider the origins and meaning of this day, but to reflect on Seneca Village, a predominately African-American community that existed before New York City created Central Park and long before we celebrated Juneteenth. Discover the history of this community and see performances by award-winning artists throughout the Park’s Seneca Village landscape that honor the voices and cultures that once resided here.
Visit the Welcome Tent located inside the Park entrance at West 85th Street for maps, performance schedules, and event information.
