Juneteenth Celebration & March

Monday, June 19, 2023

Let's Celebrate Juneteenth Together

Royal Oak will celebrate Juneteenth with a family-friendly event at Centennial Commons on Monday, June 19 from 3-8 pm. 

Juneteenth -- or Freedom Day -- dates back to June 19, 1865. It is the date when enslaved African Americans in Texas first learned that they were free. Even though the Emancipation Proclamation was issued on Jan. 1, 1863, it took more than two years for the news to spread to Texas. 

Whether you've known the history your entire life or you're just learning about Juneteenth, freedom is always worth celebrating -- so let's do it together! 

The Royal Oak Juneteenth event will be five hours of family-friendly activities, including music, games, performances, food trucks, vendors, giveaways and much more. 

Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us as we highlight the history of Emancipation in the United States.

Vendors | Food | Games | Music | Horse Rides

Join us for a day of family fun as we celebrate FREEDOM for all.
