DHA hosts a traditional Juneteenth celebration that commemorates the delayed announcement of the emancipation of enslaved persons in Texas. The celebration includes various activities such as games (bingo, card games, sack races, etc.), Gospel music, live music (R&B, jazz), and an educational segment. Our Juneteenth celebrations often include vendors for attendees to explore.
Juneteenth is a culturally significant holiday for African Americans in particular and all Americans in general. The celebration helps bring awareness to this federal holiday and highlights the importance of freedom and the city’s continued support of diversity within San Marcos.
