Juneteenth

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

The Weatherford/Parker County NAACP will celebrate Juneteenth from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 15, at the Weatherford Public Library, 1014 Charles Street. The Weatherford Public Library will co-host the event.

On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers led by Major General Gordon Granger landed at Galveston with the news that the Civil War had ended and that the enslaved were free.

This event came two-and-a-half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.

Juneteenth is celebrated with food, storytelling, and other family-friendly activities.

This event is free and open to the public.
