Come celebrate the 3rd annual Hanover Juneteenth Jubilee!
Juneteenth is a federal holiday to celebrate the emancipation of the last enslaved people after the U.S. Civil War. It also celebrates the accomplishments of Black Americans, without whom the United States would never have existed.

Although usually held on June 19, our jubilee will be held on Saturday, June 17.  We hope you will come join in the fun as we celebrate the huge contributions people of color have made to our American culture. The Hanover Juneteenth Jubilee is jointly hosted by Hanover Area Diversity Alliance & YWCA Hanover.
