Wistariahurst Museum, Juneteenth

June 19 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT


On June 19th, join Wistariahurst Museum and Genuine Culture in the gardens as we host our second annual Juneteenth event, Celebrate Juneteeth at Wisty Wednesdays! It’s time to commemorate freedom and embrace our country’s second independence day in the most joyful way possible! Enjoy competing in fun lawn games with friends in our historic gardens that are brought to life by our vibrant plants and foliage! Brace yourself for stunning face painting and dive into hands-on art projects that unleash your creativity. But that’s not all – be part of history by sharing your story through our oral history activities, capturing the voices and experiences of our community. Let’s come together to celebrate the vibrant tapestry of Black history, life, and culture that has shaped Holyoke. Join neighbors, families, friends, and local community members to share some fun and make amazing memories that will last for years to come.

DJ Pzo Pete will be on-site to provide the tunes to this amazing event that will get you dancing! When you finally work up an appetite after all of this fun and games, we will have two local food trucks to satisfy your cravings. Purchase food from Souper Sweet Sandwich Shop, a Black-owned business specializing in delicious signature sandwiches, soups, and salads that will make your taste buds sing. Mis Frituras will also be on-site, ready to serve you their delicious empanadillas, pollo frito, fresh juices, and so much more.
