Juneteenth, or Emancipation Day, originated in 1865 in Galveston, Texas. Battery Park City’s 7th annual Juneteenth Celebration offers fun and history, art and music. The Federation of Black Cowboys share history, horsemanship and riding. (Must be 3 years old or older for pony ride). Paint your own Juneteenth flag and make a bandana with bright West African print fabric. Meet Glori B, a Brooklyn watercolorist who captures the African-American West in her art. Western-style or Juneteenth dress is optional! Bring a blanket and dinner basket!”
