Juneteenth

Saturday June 19, 2021

The National Constitution Center offers many ways to celebrate Juneteenth, the annual commemoration of the end of slavery in America in 1865. On June 19, 1865, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed and nearly five months after the 13th Amendment was passed (six months before it would be ratified), enslaved people in Texas learned that they were free and that slavery in America had officially been abolished. The National Constitution Center will commemorate this anniversary with online resources, free museum admission, and special programs in conjunction with its feature exhibit, Civil War and Reconstruction: The Battle for Freedom and Equality.

Independence Day

Sunday July 4, 2021

The National Constitution Center’s Independence Week programming continues with free museum admission on July 4, plus an array of patriotic festivities including the interactive Independence Day show and family-friendly programs including craft activities, trivia games, and more.
