152 years ago, Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston and made a declaration of freedom ending the bondage of approximately 250,000 enslaved men, women and children in Texas. Since that time “Juneteenth” has been celebrated and remembered by picnics, parades, family reunions, pageants, barbecues and games. Come to Washington on the Brazos to observe this important occasion by celebrating the rich African American heritage and culture of the Brazos Valley, past and present. This new program for Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park will include artifact exhibits, art displays, prominent guest speakers such as historians and genealogists, living history buffalo soldiers and cowboys, church choir performances, food and more!
“Juneteenth Heritage Celebration” will be held from 10am-4:30pm at Visitor Center Complex, Conference Center and Education Center within Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historical Park. The park is off Highway 105 between Navasota and Brenham on FM 1155.
