DC Emancipation Day

April 16

Event Navigation

This spring, come to DC to commemorate Emancipation Day. The holiday marks an important time in DC’s history, as it celebrates the 1862 Compensated Emancipation Act, which ended slavery in the city, freeing thousands of slaves, compensating legal owners and reimbursing them with money that allowed them to emigrate. The day will entail an hour-long parade to celebrate the law and will end with a show of fireworks. You won’t want to miss out on having a chance to be in DC to take part in this important day, so make sure to schedule your trip to the city.

Book here to stay with the St. Gregory Hotel during the event.. For more information, check out the event website here.
