Juneteenth Flag Raising Ceremony
Community members are invited to join Mayor Jane Castor and members of the Tampa Bay Juneteenth Coalition featuring the Tampa Chamber of Buffalo Soldiers for a historic Juneteenth flag-raising ceremony at Old City Hall. The City will hoist the flag for the first time during a ceremony in the brick courtyard near Old City Hall on August 4 at 11:45 a.m.
Juneteenth is recognized annually on June 19 across the nation. Due to the impact of COVID-19 in our community, the Tampa Bay Juneteenth Coalition worked with the City to hoist the flag at the later date of August 4 to align with the organization’s annual Juneteenth play, which is scheduled to take place on August 8.
