Natchez Day of Unity

301 Main Street
Natchez MS, 39120

Date:  June 14, 2024

Friday, June 14th, 2024 at NAPAC beginning at 12 PM.

The City of Natchez will hold its fifth annual Day of Unity event, the continuation of a tradition begun by former Natchez Mayor Darryl Grennell during the aftermath of the 2020 George Floyd incident. “Now held every June to coincide with Flag Day, this tradition has now become an integral part of the city’s annual Juneteenth celebration and is held at a rotating location every year,” said Mayor Dan Gibson. The time and location for this year’s event will be announced soon.

“We celebrate harmony with both song and spoken word,” said Gibson. “One of my favorite parts of this event is when the sounding of the bells of churches throughout the city ring out as a reminder that we are all children of God made uniquely in His image.”
