What is the Journey to Juneteenth?

Hujambo Wasafiri (Hello Travelers in Swahili)! The Journey to Juneteenth is a multi-month Scavenger Hunt that serves as an interactive journey educating participants on the history of the Juneteenth Celebration from it’s origins to it’s present day celebration while having fun interacting with different locations, sponsors and vendors from the upcoming Juneteenth Central Oregon Celebration!
