Greeneville to host inaugural Juneteenth event

Greeneville Juneteenth

The town of Greeneville and George Clem Multicultural Alliance announce plans for Greeneville’s first annual Juneteenth celebration. Juneteenth, which became a federal holiday in 2021, commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas, the last state of the Confederacy with institutional slavery. The local event will offer free festivities for all ages from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday, June 19, at the Big Spring. Live entertainment, food, and other activities will be held throughout the day at the Big Spring, which is located behind the Greeneville-Greene County Library. More details of the event will be announced as they become available. For more information on the event, please visit and search for the event “Greeneville Juneteenth 2022” or visit
