What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in America. June 19, 1865 is the day when news of the emancipation finally reached slaves in Texas, 2 years after they had been freed. This independence day is celebrated all over the United States by people of all races, ethnicities, nationalities, and religions. It is an official state holiday in many states.

 

Why celebrate Juneteenth?

The Juneteenth Freedom Festival is all about commUNITY. The YWCA of the Sauk Valley held their first celebration in 2008 and is proud to continue the tradition. Juneteenth gives us an opportunity to learn our history, grow our awareness and knowledge, celebrate our freedom, and look to our future. When we all come together, we are able to embrace a shared vision of commUNITY, making peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all possible!
