Juneteenth Picnic Event
Juneteenth commemorates the announcement in Galveston,Texas on June 19, 1865 when freedom for slaves was finally announced by Union authorities. Celebrations began the following year mainly as church-centered events and have evolved ever since.
Princeton United Methodist Church and Princeton’s Mt. Pisgah African Methodist Episcopal Church formed a partnership, centered around Juneteenth, in 2020. Our first event is being planned, a Juneteenth Picnic. Check out the event page for more information!
