Celebrate Juneteenth with Free Admission at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden! 

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is thrilled to offer free admission on Juneteenth, Wednesday, June 19th. Join us for a day of community amidst the vibrant beauty of our 120-acre garden. This celebration of community was generously sponsored by R Bank. 

“Juneteenth is a powerful day to honor African American history, strength, and progress,” said Patrick Newman, FWBG President and CEO. “We hope this opportunity will allow our guests to connect with nature, celebrate freedom, and envision a bright future together.” 

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is the oldest botanic garden in Texas and is celebrating its 90th birthday this year. Guests visiting the Garden can enjoy a stroll through the peaceful Japanese Garden with its koi-filled pools and cascading waterfalls, and marvel at the iconic Rose Garden with its terraced walkways and colorful blooms. FWBG has 23 specialty gardens that offer something for everyone. 

“R Bank is proud to be a sponsor of the Juneteenth free admission day for the third year,” says R Bank Market President Kent McCune. “This is more than just an event – it’s about honoring heritage, celebrating freedom, and fostering unity. We believe in supporting our community and events with significant cultural importance. At R Bank, we do things for the right reasons, and this sponsorship reflects our commitment to inclusivity and community engagement.” 

FWBG promotes inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility through multiple events and services throughout the year, including Japanese Festivals, ¡Celebramos!, free admission days, Museums4All Program for Lone Star EBT cardholders, reduced rate Access Level Memberships for SNAP/WIC recipients, MusePass through all Fort Worth Public Libraries, Family Community Passes, free admission for FWISD students every school day from 3 to 6 p.m. (excluding summer and holidays), and an employee IDEA Committee. 

FWBG will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Juneteenth, with last admission at 5 p.m. Learn more about the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and all it has to offer at www.fwbg.org. Parking onsite at the Garden is free.
