Mayor Demings' SealWHAT:

Residents are invited to join Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings and members of the Orange County Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Initiative to this year’s “Juneteenth & Greek Day Community Celebration” scheduled for Wednesday, June 14, 2023 on the front lawn of the County Administration Building. In case of bad weather, a rain date has been set for Friday June 16, 2023.

This event is free, open to the public, and will offer a Community Resource and Job Fair featuring several Orange County departments where individuals can learn about job openings. Additionally, local community partners will be onsite to showcase their resources and services.

There will be live entertainment, free give-a-ways, and food trucks to celebrate the occasion.

On June 14, Orange County will celebrate freedom, equality, and progress of African Americans in Central Florida and across the globe. That is the spirit of Juneteenth Independence Day. Through collaboration and inclusion, Orange County will continue to create a community culture that works for everyone.

The Juneteenth & Greek Day Celebration will be hosted and moderated by Comedian Rod Z. To learn more visit, About Rod Z.


While Juneteenth recognizes the freedom of African Americans, it also promotes continuous self-development and respect for all cultures and ethnicities. This commemoration has begun to take on a more national, symbolic, and even global perspective. The events of 1865 will never be forgotten. Embracing cultural differences breeds a sense of growth and cohesiveness.
