WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - Calling all talent! Auditions are underway for the 9th Annual Watertown Juneteenth celebration.

Juneteenth, a national holiday, marks the anniversary of June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers arrived at Galveston, Texas to announce that the Civil War had ended and that all slaves were free.

Organizers are seeking poets, musicians, narrators, and dancers of all backgrounds to share their talents. Juneteenth is also teaming up with the North Country Arts Council.

Material must be suitable for all ages and for the celebration of Juneteenth.
