“Faith4Hope Presents” Juneteenth Freedom Celebration

This daylong, community-led celebration features music, dance and other performances, a host of youth and family activities, historical and cultural booths and vendors offering an array of food and merchandise
What is Juneteenth Celebration?
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth today, celebrates African American freedom and achievement, while encouraging continuous self-development and respect for all cultures. As it takes on a more national, symbolic and even global perspective, the events of 1865 in Texas are not forgotten, for all of the roots tie back to this fertile soil from which a national day of pride is growing.
The future of Juneteenth looks bright as the number of cities and states creating Juneteenth to be a state holiday continues to increase. I am proud to say that Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday now in North Dakota!
