JOIN US FOR SPRINGBORO'S JUNETEENTH JUBILEE
The Springboro Juneteenth Jubilee is a family-friendly community celebration being held on June 19, 2021, honoring the important day in our nation's history, June 19, 1865, when we all truly became free. On this day, the last slaves in Galveston, Texas were finally told of their freedom, nearly two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation had abolished slavery.
On this day, we celebrate our shared history, freedom, and continued commitment to equity and inclusion for all.
The Juneteenth Jubilee will take place across three unique venues in Springboro, Ohio and will include live music and performances, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, Underground Railroad tours, local food trucks, prizes, and more! All are welcome!
WHY JUNETEENTH IN SPRINGBORO?
Springboro is a significant landmark in the history of the Underground Railroad and abolitionist movement. Our founding Quaker community played a major role as a safe harbor for slaves paving the way for freedom for Black Americans.
