Juneteenth Celebration 2024

June 19 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

All are welcome to unite in celebration of Juneteenth with music, food and activities to partake in. The event will feature live performances from various artists to create an unforgettable day of music and unity.

Juneteenth, which is a nationally recognized holiday on June 19 in the United States, celebrates when in 1865 Union Army General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas to tell enslaved African Americans they are now free. This was one of the last places in the United States to free slaves after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863.

The City will be joining in celebrations across the country by hosting this free event for the community to come together and participate in. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
