Each year in mid-June, communities across the U.S. celebrate Juneteenth–a commemoration of the abolition of slavery in America. In New Orleans, enjoy visiting historic sites or stopping by a special Juneteenth celebration. Here’s more of what to do in New Orleans for Juneteenth.
New Orleans African American Museum
The mission of the New Orleans African American Museum is to preserve the history and elevate the art, culture, and contributions of African Americans in New Orleans and the African Diaspora. The museum is located at 1417 Governor Nichols.
Every third Saturday the museum supports Black-owned businesses and institutions! The next event will be extra special, as it falls on Juneteenth: Saturday, June 19th.
This is a free event and patrons are encouraged to join the New Orleans African American Museum or renew their membership.
This is a socially distant event, providing ample indoor and outdoor space. MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR ENTRY.
