Best Southwest Juneteenth Celebration

Why is there a Juneteenth Celebration?

According to www.Wikipedia.com:

“Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is a holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South. Celebrated on June 19, the word is a portmanteau of “June” and “nineteenth”.[1][2] Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in most states.[3]

The holiday is observed primarily in local celebrations given by our  Best Southwest Cities who each host the Juneteenth Celebration.

Please join the Best Southwest Cities of Lancaster (host), Duncanville, Cedar Hill and Desoto in celebrating Juneteenth on Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Lancaster Community Park located at 1700 Veterans Memorial Pkwy, Lancaster, TX,  75134-3316.  For more information, please connect to the City of Lancaster website:  http://www.lancaster-tx.com/1214/Juneteenth-Celebration
