Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. On June 19th 1865, Union soldiers arrived in Texas and spread the word that President Lincoln had delivered his Emancipation Proclamation -- two years after Lincoln had issued the proclamation. The Juneteenth Festival has become a day not only for day for African Americans to celebrate their freedom, culture and achievements, but for all people of all racial backgrounds to celebrate freedom and respect for all cultures.
