Archived News Release: June 15, 2021 - ​In honor of Juneteenth, City of Ann Arbor municipal offices, including the customer service center at Larcom City Hall and the 15th Judicial District Court at the Ann Arbor Justice Center, will be closed Friday, June 18, 2021, to observe the holiday. Safety services and utility operations will maintain 24-hour schedules throughout.

Curbside trash, recycling and compost service will continue without interruption, so residents are encouraged to put out material per their normal schedule.

Looking for a way to commemorate the holiday? The City of Ann Arbor is partnering with the Ann Arbor Branch of the NAACP to host an in-person Juneteenth walk with other local partners. The community is invited to join in the one-mile march starting at Fuller Park in Ann Arbor, 1519 Fuller Road, to Wheeler Park Saturday, June 19 (rain or shine), 10 a.m.–noon. The walk will pass along Riverside Park, across the Broadway Bridge to Summit Street before reaching Wheeler Park where there will be refreshments, conversation and information. At 1 p.m., the Ann Arbor Branch of the NAACP and other event collaborators will present a Juneteenth virtual program broadcast on CTN and viewable on YouTube.
