2020 June 19th, Texas Freedom Festival/Juneteenth Postponed
The reschedule date is Pending.
While Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom, emphasizes education, economics, and social opportunities. The new health precautions and need for social distancing has limited our ability to create a multi-arts experience that will be safe for our audience.
Although we cannot celebrate in person this year, we encourage everyone to use #TEXASFREEDOMFESTIVAL and #JNETEENTHSAT to share how you plans to honor Juneteenth while social distancing.
As your Juneteenth Commissioner, thanks for your continued support through these difficult times and looks forward to bringing Texas Freedom Festival back in 2021.
