Juneteenth Festival

Saturday, June 15, 2019

"Juneteenth" is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Marking the date that the last enslaved people learned of their freedom, the month of June and the nineteenth day were combined to form the word Juneteenth.

Join us as we provide exciting and unique cultural programming for the entire family! Bring a blanket and lawn chairs for a joyous day of live entertainment, children’s activities, exhibitions, historical interpretation, and art and food vendors. Learn about your history and have fun at the same time!
