Celebrate the cultural and historical significance of Juneteenth and freedom through music, art, food and business on Sunday, June 16, 2024, at Avenida Houston, downtown’s premier entertainment district.

Avenida Houston will activate the Plaza with a day-long series of events commemorating Juneteenth and the end of slavery.

Emancipation did not come to Texas until June 19th,1865 two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1st, 1863. For many enslaved African Americans, Juneteenth symbolizes the end of slavery and the beginning of freedom. While its roots are in Texas, and it has been a state holiday for more than 40 years, Juneteenth also has become a federal holiday that is celebrated throughout the United States.

This year’s free, family event will feature live music, along with 100 BLCK Market Vendors, food trucks, art, KTSU 90.9FM, The Vibe lounge, and more. Participants can enjoy some of Houston’s top entertainment, while also supporting local Black businesses. Activities will extend to the adjacent Discovery Green Park. The event will wrap with a fireworks finale!
