For 41 years, our cookouts have been the central gathering point for our reunions.  This year, we will do something different!!! The temperature in Houston, TX in mid-August tends to lean around 95 degrees.  And on top of that, the humidity is sky high!!! That equals very hot and sticky conditions.  For that reason, we are changing things up and we are gathering indoors this year.  Let's call it a Tucker-Rhodes Soulfood Family Lunch!!!  Of course, there will be good food and activities for all ages!!!  Most of all, we will not be hot!!! Purchase your ticket TODAY!!!

The Family Lunch will be located at Emancipation Park.  Emancipation Park has experienced a renaissance, both in terms of physical restoration and renewed community engagement. A major revitalization effort began in 2015, resulting in more than $30 million in renovations which completely transforming the park. These renovations included the construction of a state-of-the-art recreation center, playgrounds, walking trails, and improved green spaces. Emancipation Park stands as a testament to the enduring strength and resilience of the African American community and serves as a reminder of the progress that can be achieved through collective action.

Emancipation Park Includes:

  • Aquatic Center

  • Baseball Field

  • Fitness Center

  • Indoor Gymnasium with Basketball Hoops

  • Playground

  • Tennis Courts

We are excited to have MIKKI'S SOUL FOOD CAFE as our caterer this year and they have guaranteed to FEED THE FAMILY SOMETHING GOOD!!!  Mikki's is the epitome of the "meat and three" soul food experience.  Eating here is like eating at Grandma's house -- its huge portions of real home cooking are sure to elicit fond memories of times past.
