Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. The day is celebrated on June 19 in most states and you can get some great information about this holiday below.
Juneteenth is a celebration observed annually on June 19 in the United States of America and in the former slave-holding states of the Americas to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans following the abolition of slavery and their emancipation proclamation. Juneteenth occurs on June 19, because that was when Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, with news that the Civil War had ended and that slavery had been abolished. It is also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day.
Juneteenth is one of America’s oldest, most festive and widely-observed celebrations. The holiday commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas on June 19, 1865 – at the conclusion of the Civil War. Juneteenth is a day to celebrate the end of slavery and to give thanks. It’s also a day to think about the long history of African Americans’ struggle for equal rights.
Juneteenth Firework Show
Juneteenth is set to return once again in Austin, Texas. This time around we not only have a larger musical lineup, but an amazing firework show! We will be featuring more than 50 different performers as well as displaying state of the art fireworks at Central Park in Austin.
Best place to watch the Juneteenth Texas Fireworks Show is the Fourth of July area located along the San Antonio River on Broadway. Situated at the base of the U.S. 281 bridge, it offers unobstructed views of both sides of the river and provides a great vantage point to enjoy the explosion of color dancing across the sky as fireworks light up San Antonio’s night sky.
Juneteenth is a celebration of our freedom and heritage as Americans. We hope you can join us as we proudly celebrate our freedom, commemorating the moment slaves in Texas learned they were free with a spectacular fireworks show.
Juneteenth is a time to celebrate, so kick back and relax with us for an evening full of fireworks, fun and food. After the show, enjoy refreshing beverages and snacks on the patio. Come out and join us for the annual Juneteenth celebration in the park. This is a great opportunity to visit with friends, family and neighbors while enjoying a beautiful fireworks show.
