Juneteenth Freedom Festival

Juneteenth celebrates the end of legal slavery in the United States in 1865 after the Civil War.  On June 19, 1865, a Union General arrived in Galveston, TX, and re-issued Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.  Thus the name “Juneteenth.” Texans have been celebrating Junteenth ever since.

Cincinnati began our Annual Festival in 1988.
