Event Information:

Hosanna School Museum will hold its second annual Juneteenth celebration festival on Saturday, June 23, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the museum, 2424 Castleton Road in Darlington. The festival is open to the public and free of charge. Juneteenth is a nationally recognized day that commemorates the ending of slavery in the United States and celebrates African American history and culture. It is sometimes referred to as Emancipation Day. This year’s celebration will feature Buffalo Soldiers in addition to living history presentations featuring re-enactors portraying Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass and Edmonia Highgate, the first teacher at Hosanna School; lectures and book signings; African dancers and drummers with audience participation; liturgical dancers; and a variety of musical performances. Special activities for children will include griots (storytellers); visits from Ferrous and Ripcord from the Aberdeen IronBirds and Miss Juneteenth of Delaware; horse rides and photos with the Buffalo Soldiers; and crafts organized by Jerusalem Mill. The day will also feature a variety of food trucks and a bake sale. Hosanna AME Church's famous fish dinners will also be available. Other special features at the celebration include a money tree and silent auction. All proceeds go toward educational and interpretive programming and continued preservation of the historic buildings owned by Hosanna School Museum, including McComas Institute and Mt. Zion Church in Joppa. Hosanna is partnering on the celebration with the Iota Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.; Hosanna AME Church; Harford County alumnae of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.; and Havre de Grace Rotary Club. Sponsors of Juneteenth include Harford County Government and the Office of Economic Development. For more information, visit hosannaschoolmuseum.org.
