Let us support the Juneteenth Events in Port Arthur! Read On... for all events scheduled for Port Arthur's Juneteenth Celebration! ↓
The African American Cultural Society will again organize events to commemorate June 19th, the day Texas enslaved people learned of their freedom. The theme for 2023 is LIFT EVERY VOICE.
A Gospel Explosion, Pageant, Sneaker Ball, and Parade are part of Juneteenth activities during this Quasquicentennial year in Port Arthur.
Gail Pellum, of the African American Cultural Society, says Juneteenth is a day to appreciate and celebrate freedom and the inclusion of all races, ethnicities, and nationalities in our community. All are invited to wear cultural attire and join in the parade, decorate cars and trucks, and sign up drill teams, dance groups, and talents for park activities. There will be an official T-shirt, booths, and souvenir book ads. For more information, call Pellum at (409) 332-1709.
