Juneteenth 2023

June 17, 2023 at 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Juneteenth celebrates enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation reaching the westernmost Confederate state of Texas. The Proclamation went into effect in 1863, but this news was purposefully withheld from enslaved people until the arrival of Union troops in Galveston Bay, Texas on June 19, 1865. Juneteenth marks our country’s second independence day.

Learn more about Juneteenth’s history and traditions.
