On board the train, you will wind through the Texas Hill Country, crossing the trestle bridge over the South San Gabriel River and Short Creek Canyon.

Juneteenth 2021: Stay Black and Live Vol. 2

Juneteenth 2021: Stay Black and Live Vol. 2 is a city wide Juneteenth festival presented by Six Square, CarverMuseumATX, and the Black Austin Coalition, in partnership with Jump On It, the Austin Area Urban League, Austin Justice Coalition, and GEAYA. A year after we transformed the Juneteenth festivities from a parade and block party to a virtual festival, this year’s theme reflects on Black people’s initiative and willpower to free themselves because no one else will do it for us, and how it is through our collective strength that we have made our mark wherever we go.
