Jubilation in June Festival

The 2nd Annual Jubilation in June Festival goes down on Sunday, June 18th at Intermediate Terminal.




The Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities (PRCF) will host the 2nd Annual Jubilation in June Festival on Sunday, June 18, co-sponsored with Radio One Richmond and Unlocking RVA at Intermediate Terminal (3101 Wharf Street) beginning at 3 p.m. This festival will feature performances from Richmond’s Thea Paul, the Virginia Union University gospel choir, national recording group WanMor, KAMAUU, and DJs from Power 92.1 and Kiss Richmond. The evening will culminate with the multi-platinum Grammy Award Winning group Arrested Development, whose distinctive celebration of Boom Bap & Classic Hip Hop Style, flow, vibe, influential wordplay, and infectious soundscapes will be the background to this year’s fireworks display.

“We’re excited to be in the second year of this new tradition for the City of Richmond, as a reminder that it is not just a celebration of freedom but also one of opportunity, equity, and access,” says Priscilla Wright, Special Event Manager for the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Facilities. “It brings us jubilation to celebrate this event where many enslaved people first stepped foot in America.”

Those that plan to attend the event can park at the Main Street Station parking lot for free and catch the GRTC Pulse bus to the East River Front Station. On-street parking will not be available on East Main Street between the roundabout and Nicholson Street.
