Juneteenth Celebration

Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia

Event Details

On June 19, 2021 the Frontier Culture Museum will celebrate Juneteenth with a wide variety of historical, cultural, and educational programs.
Admission Fee: Pay-What-You-Will (Donations appreciated)
This year’s activities will be conducted in partnership with the Shenandoah Valley Juneteenth Celebration Committee and will feature live interpretive demonstrations on many of the Museum’s exhibits highlighting the contributions made by enslaved West Africans to the evolving American frontier culture here in Virginia. These contributions include foodways, music, architecture, and crafts and will be featured on the Museum’s West African Farm, American Farms, and Mt Tabor Church exhibits.
The day will also include roots music performances, guest speakers, and an African-American history exhibit. Youth-oriented Arts and Afro-centric activities and games will be available as well.
Community service organizations (e.g. voter registration, health services, etc) will be present in the Museum’s main courtyard throughout the day.
As part of the Juneteenth community event, the Museum will be hosting an Augusta Health pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic at our Octagonal Barn. This event will supplement Augusta Health’s ongoing efforts to reach disproportionately affected populations throughout the Shenandoah Valley with lifesaving inoculations. The Juneteenth Celebration Day runs from 9am -5pm and will be free to the general public (Pay-What-You-Will Donation Day).
