Juneteenth Celebration at the Mercer Museum

The 2nd Annual Juneteenth at the Mercer Museum is brought to you by Doylestown Juneteenth, the African Diaspora Collective of Bucks County, the PairUP Society, the Bucks County Anti-Racism Coalition, the NAACP of Bucks County, and the Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle.

Join us to celebrate Juneteenth in the heart of the Doylestown Cultural District.

This event commemorates the anniversary of June 19, 1865, when the last enslaved people in the United States learned that they had been freed. We will celebrate this occasion with speakers, live performances, musicians, a DJ, food trucks, vendors and artisans, family-friendly crafts and activities, and free admission to the Mercer Museum. This event is free to the public and will be held rain or shine.

Parking is very limited at the Mercer Museum, and guests are asked to use the free Bucks County Parking Garage located at Broad & Court Streets in downtown Doylestown. A free DART Bus shuttle will run a continuous loop between the Mercer Museum and the garage between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Street parking is also available and all local rules apply.
