  • The band Zapp will be headlining San Antonio's Juneteeth Festival.

On Friday, June 19, San Antonio will be celebrating Juneteenth in style. This year's Juneteeth Festival marks the 150th anniversary of the announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas.

To commemorate the day, Comanche Park #2 (2600 Rigsby Ave., 210-335-7275 ) will host a free concert from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The American-funk band Zapp will headline the concert, and they will be supported by Carlton Silver King & The Secret Code.

The event will also include a health fair, gospel groups, activities for children, and, of course, food. All proceeds will benefit the Davis Scott YMCA and other non-profit organizations.
