JUNETEENTH FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL WEEKEND

WEEKEND EVENTS

Bring the entire family for an amazing week as we celebrate freedom in America!

EVENT HISTORY

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics, and family gatherings. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement, and planning for the future. Its growing popularity signifies a level of maturity and dignity in America long overdue. In cities across the country, people of all races, nationalities, and religions are joining hands to truthfully acknowledge a period in our history that shaped and continues to influence our society today.

EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

The festival features 2 days of events dedicated to chefs and culinary personalities of the Black culture including wine and spirits.

IT’S ALMOST HERE!
