Celebrate Juneteenth in Montgomery County

This time last year, we as a nation came together to support Black Americans in the wake of a nationwide movement in support of Black Lives Matter. Part of supporting this national movement included observing Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the southern United States. Now celebrated annually on June 19 throughout the United States, Juneteenth continues to gain national and federal recognition. 

We invite you to join us, here in Montgomery County, as our communities gear up for a day of equal observation and celebration this Juneteenth.
