Tamarac Celebrates Juneteenth With a Story Time Extravaganza
Tamarac, Fl. (June 16, 2021) – Join the City of Tamarac for its first official Juneteenth celebration on Saturday, June 19. At the Juneteenth Story Time Extravaganza, children and families can learn about the holiday and its significance in United States history.

Activities include presentations by two storytellers, dance performances by Delou African Dance Ensemble and Vision Dance, a poetry presentation, games, a live DJ and more. Attendees will also enjoy an ice cream treat.
In October 2020, Tamarac became the second city in Broward County to recognize Juneteenth as an official holiday when the City Commission passed an ordinance to acknowledge and celebrate the day. Tamarac is proud to offer the community a fun and educational event to commemorate the end of slavery in the U.S. on Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day.
Additionally, the City of Tamarac will be closed for business on Friday, June 18, in observance of the holiday.
