Juneteenth Flag Raising

June 18 @ 10:30 am

family, Juneteenth

Celebrate Culture

The African American Cultural Society will host Port Arthur’s 2021 Juneteenth events. Join the community in raising a flag. The event will be at 10:30 a.m. on June 18, the day before Juneteenth. Gather at the Jefferson County Sub-Courthouse, 525 Lakeshore Drive.

Because this is near our beautiful seawall, look out to the waters to check for seagoing vessels. 

Library display

Want to learn more? After you attend the flag raising, next head to the Port Arthur Public Library. They will present a Juneteenth display throughout the month. Certainly, this will include stories of music, cultural foods and pride. Carolyn M. Thibodeaux, children’s librarian, is a coordinator for the African American Culture Society.
