Juneteenth

Monday, June 20, 2022

County Closed

In honor of Juneteenth, all Bucks County Government and Court offices are closed on Monday, June 20, 2022.

Observed each year on June 19, the holiday commemorates the emancipation of African-American slaves in the United States. Juneteenth originates from Galveston, Texas, where on June 19, 1865, federal troops arrived and, through enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation, ushered in freedom for the city’s enslaved people.

Though Juneteenth has been celebrated annually since that day, and is considered the longest-running African-American holiday, it was only officially recognized as a federal holiday in 2021. Pennsylvania first recognized the holiday in 2019.

As Juneteenth this year falls on a Sunday, the county will be closed the following day, Monday, June 20, in observance.
