The 3rd annual Eastern Shore Juneteenth Festival is presented by Friends of Chipman Cultural Center. Sponsored by the Chipman Foundation, the Eastern Shore Juneteeth Festival commemorates the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America.

The Chipman Foundation aims to educate the community of the significance of Juneteenth and of local African American culture and history.
