HOUSTON – Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, commemorates the enforced end of slavery in Galveston on June 19, 1865.

The holiday celebrates freeing the last enslaved African America people in the United States.

Here are several Juneteenth celebration events happening around Houston:

A brilliant performance filled with dramatic visuals, live music, narrations, and dance that tells the story of African Americans from 1865 to today and their journey to the celebration of freedom. Performers include Brian Courtney Wilson, Gene Moore, J Xavier, Kathy Taylor, Kirk Richmond, Liz Vaughn, Mary Griffin, Nakitta Foxx, Spud Howard, Stacy J, Tyrone Belle, and Werner Richmond.

All performances at Miller Outdoor Theatre are free. Get more information here.

The Missouri City Juneteenth Celebration offers five days of family-oriented fun-filled events and activities which include: a Kick-off Dance, a Golf Tournament, A Community Service Awards Gala, the “One Mile of Smiles” parade, and a “Festival Under the Stars.” A music festival featuring hip-hop, R&B, jazz, blues, country, Zydeco and renowned musical performers.

The MCJCF utilizes many venues within Missouri City but we place the spotlight on one in particular, the “Freedom Tree” (located in Freedom Tree Park) which serves as a reminder of the tumultuous journey Africans faced upon their arrival to an inhospitable land. Yet in spite of the prevailing conditions, they manage to accomplish so much.
