Highfield Hall & Gardens presents a Juneteenth Celebration

Highfield Hall & Gardens and the Woods Hole Diversity Advisory Committee is pleased to announce a Juneteenth celebration open to all on Wednesday, June 19.

Celebrate Juneteenth your way. Dance to the tunes of Crocodile River Music, enjoy refreshments and conversation, or take a reflective walk in Beebe Woods. Activities for all ages!

The morning begins with opening remarks under the tent at 10:30 am, followed by music from the Crocodile River Music group from 11:00- 11:45 am. African rhythms, history, and culture merge into movement, cultural exploration, and joy with Crocodile River Music. Internationally recognized, the group consists of members from Mali, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Guinea, Tanzania, and the US. This diverse group of people is committed to presenting African art, music, and culture to audiences of all ages, backgrounds, and capabilities. Their goal is to provide experiences that encourage all participants to gain awareness of the intrinsic value of African arts, cultures, and histories.

In addition, several paths of variable lengths will be shown on map handouts for reflective walks for freedom in the Highfield Gardens or the surrounding Beebe Woods. Art from the Black History Month High School Art competition will be on display and information about Juneteenth will be available. Belonging Books, a community program provider and pop-up bookstore will be on site.

For younger folks there will be crafts and a Storywalk, with the picture book, Juneteenth for Mazie on the ADA accessible historic Beech Tree path, presented in collaboration with the Falmouth Library Youth Services Division. Highfield Hall will also be open for touring.

Light refreshments will be available under the tent, including complimentary tasty treats from Aundria’s Kitchen. TheKTCHEN Food Truck will have food for sale. Non-perishable food will be collected for the Falmouth Service Center. Please consider bringing a donation
