Juneteenth a major music event this year

Posted: Wednesday, June 16, 2010 12:00 am

The sounds of celebration will be of a quality rarely heard before in Wharton County or any other venue for that matter with a number of headlining performers sharing the entertainment bill for this year’s Wharton County Juneteenth Celebration.

This year’s event is broken up into three different activies that combine to form the entire county wide celebration. The third of those activies, the Inaugural James Simmons Jr. Juneteenth Festival will be held on the grounds of the Wharton County Courthouse and surrounding Monterey Square.
