Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.

Texas-style BBQ, Texas History Trivia, sweet treats, Games, Live Band, and our annual Health and wellness fair featuring the Student Wellness Center, Student Health Center, and more!
