The spirit of Juneteenth is inclusive of all as we celebrate this momentous occasion.
On June 19, 1865 Major Gen. Gordon Granger came to Galveston, Texas, to inform the community that President Abraham Lincoln, two years earlier, had freed slaves. Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated on June 19 that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States.
A huge thank you to all of our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, board members, and participants of the 2023 Juneteenth Celebration! We could not have experienced the success that we had without you!
