Tips from the community

Houston’s proximity to Gavelston means they’ve been celebrating Juneteenth almost as long as the island has. In 1872, Black folks in the city raised one thousand dollars, purchased ten acres of land, and began celebrating the holiday annually. Much like today, they sang, danced, and barbecued on Juneteenth. Today, Emancipation Park will celebrate for the 150th time, and legendary Black artists like The Isley Brothers, Kool & The Gang, and a Black family reunion favorite, Frankie Beverly and Maze, will be taking the stage. Local vendors and community panels regarding healthcare disparities and economic empowerment will also be happening. One of the best parts of the Emancipation Park event is that $150,000 worth of grants will be awarded to local organizations. If you’re in town for the full weekend, don’t forget to attend Houston’s Juneteenth parade that kicks off from Acres Homes Multi-Service Center on June 18th.
