Juneteenth in Augusta, GA 

June 19, 2021 

Although the Emancipation Proclamation was signed years before, the news did not get to Galveston, Texas until 1865. It is recognized as "Freedom Day" and events take place all over the country. Enjoy presentations, gospel singing, corn hole tournaments, the taste of Southern Soul Food Vendors and support black owned businesses during Augusta's Juneteenth celebrations.
