Come Celebrate with Us 2024 Official Juneteenth Festival
In 1996, the first Juneteenth Celebration was held at the Freeman Coliseum and featured local bands and entertainment. Future festivals have been held at the Carver Cultural Center and St. Paul Square. However, for the past 20+years, the festival has found a home at Comanche Park No. 2. Through the tireless efforts of the Commission, volunteers and community organizers, the Juneteenth Festival has grown to be a favorite venue for family reunions, community. This year is no exception. Join the Flotilla for their annual “Fish Fry” Friday benefiting their local scholarship fund. Local musicians and DJs will have you dancing and shouting the night away. Friday night headliner is the local group The Legends. Saturday evening the festival closes with the R&B style of Larry Braggs, former lead singer of the Tower of Power. Bring your whole family out for this free event.
See old friends and meet new ones at the Annual Juneteenth Festival.
