Hearts of Freedom: A Juneteenth Community Celebration

June 19 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

We can’t wait to see you at S.T.A.R’s 3rd annual Juneteenth Community Celebration!

This free-to-attend celebration will once again take place on the lawn at The New Canaan Museum & Historical Society at 13 Oenoke Ridge, New Canaan, CT. We’ll start at 3pm and end at 7pm. Be prepared to be wowed by local band, The Misfits. Bring a picnic or buy super yummy soul food from Miss Thelma’s, VeganEats and Zlicious Caribbean Food. Join in to help create a community art piece with featured mixed media artist, Sharon Smalls Walton.

While free to attend, and walk-ins are certainly welcome, we kindly ask that you register in advance so we have enough supplies!

We are beyond grateful to the sponsors of this increasingly popular local event: Bankwell, The Glass House, Walter Stewarts Market, The New Canaan Museum & Historical Society, Newcanaanite.com., New Canaan Library, and Roselli Trading Company.

Note: Due to construction, St. Marks Church, which is right next door, has generously allowed Juneteenth attendees to park in their lot. New Canaan’s Service League of Boys (SLOBs) has kindly volunteered to help direct traffic to the church parking lot.
