2023’s Top 10 Most Poppin’ Juneteenth Celebrations in the US
Juneteenth is the oldest, nationally celebrated commemoration of the historical event of 1865 in Galveston, TX that declared the end of slavery in the United States. Also known as Emancipation or Independence Day, this holiday is celebrated from coast to coast in the United States. One of the things that I love about celebrating Juneteenth is that it is a family-oriented holiday where you come together with family and friends to celebrate the emancipation of African American slaves. Good food, good music, good vibes…from coast to coast, it goes down on Juneteenth! Read more to find out where some of the most happening Juneteenth celebrations will take place this year.
