Tucson Annual Juneteenth Festival



The 154th anniversary of our country's Juneteenth celebration happens in 2019. Celebrations in Tucson and around the USA aim to increase knowledge and appreciation of the roles, achievements and contributions of African Americans to our society and pay tribute to this important milestone in our nation's history -- the annual commemoration of the end of slavery, when our nation finally and truly became "the land of the free" (on June 19, 1865). Enjoy historical presentations and exhibits, music and dance, arts, crafts and food vendors, at Tucson Convention Center. Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States.
