What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers landed in Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Celebrated in June, Juneteenth is a great cultural celebration that takes place in many cities across the nation, and has been celebrated in Tulsa for over 20 years.

 

  A team of community-based organizations and community members came together to create the collaborative Tulsa Juneteenth Planning Committee four years ago. Last year, attendance exceeded our expectations and demonstrated the significance of this historical celebration returning to the African-American community on Greenwood Ave.  This celebration takes place in the Heart of the Historic Greenwood District and throughout the IDL, Tulsa Juneteenth Celebration will take place June 17 - 20, 2021. The Board of Directors’ goal is to create a multi-arts experience that recognizes and celebrates the rich heritage of Juneteenth.

 

  In celebration and honor of Juneteenth, Tulsa Juneteenth, Inc, is implementing a weekend of entertainment that includes a celebration of music with nationally-acclaimed artists, Open Mic, Visual Art, educational workshops, performances by local artists and an exclusive VIP Sponsor Party. This celebration is a community driven event that brings together people from all over Tulsa, making this an event for all wanting to celebrate or learn.
