Why We Celebrate

University City Juneteenth Art Fest is more than just an event; it’s a celebration of freedom, resilience, and the power of community. Juneteenth marks the day when news of the Emancipation Proclamation reaches the last enslaved people in Texas, symbolizing the end of slavery in the United States.  Today, we honor this milestone by celebrating the creativity and culture that have flourished within our community.

We can’t wait to see you there!
