Come on out to Ivers Square on June 17th, 2023 at 12pm and celebrate Juneteenth with your community! For those that don’t know, Juneteenth is a day that commemorates the emancipation of enslaved¬† African Americans. This took place on June 19, 1865, the date in which enslaved people in Galveston, Texas, finally received the news they were free.

There will be artisanal craft vendors, social service organizations, food vendors, door prizes, and a kids area coordinated by Discovery Playhouse! And lastly, at 1pm our entertainment begins!  In addition to renown poet, Ebony Stewart performing, the following bands/artists will also be jamming out:
