Brooklyn Juneteenth Food Festival

Weeksville Heritage Center and Jummy’s Picks by Black-Owned Brooklyn are partnering again for the third annual Juneteenth Food Festival! This vibrant celebration of Black food and culture will feature 40+ food vendors and artisans.

From sizzling barbecue and crispy catfish, to red velvet cake and homemade ice cream (plus abundant vegan options), the festival is steeped in tradition. Food has been a part of Juneteenth since its first observance in 1866, commemorating June 19, 1865 — when enslaved Texans received news of their freedom, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed.

In addition, the festival features a marketplace of specialty items from local Black artisans and dynamic programming including all-day sets by the Soul Summit DJ crew, performances by champion double dutch team the Jazzy Jumpers, workshops by Haus of Glitter dance collective and restorative yoga led by Sensate Wellness. There will also be art-making activities, food demos and more!
