City releases 2021 Juneteenth Holiday Schedule

All City administrative offices will be closed on Friday, June 18 in observance of Juneteenth.

Juneteenth—also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day or Emancipation Day— celebrates the day that Texas slaves learned of their freedom, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863.

The City of El Paso adopted Juneteenth as a City holiday on September 29, 2020 and will observe it for the first time this coming Friday.

The official holiday is Saturday, June 19.

A complete list of City services and facilities impacted by the holiday is available under the Juneteenth Holiday Closures banner online.
