Juneteenth commemorates the effective end of slavery in the United States. Two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, news reached Texas and, upon learning they were free, former slaves immediately began celebrating with prayer, feasting, song and dance.

The Juneteenth Celebration of Freedom will feature an expanded kidz zone, live performances, food trucks, vendors and fireworks show. It is a place for all races, nationalities, and religions to join hands and truthfully acknowledge a period in history that shaped and continues to influence our society today, according to a news release. This event is free and open to the public.
