Fauquier Juneteenth festival at Eva Walker Park

Fauquier’s County’s first Juneteenth African-American Cultural Festival — featuring art, exhibits, food music and vendors — will take place Saturday, June 19, in Warrenton’s Eva Walker Park.

Juneteenth celebrates the 1865 end of slavery in the United States.

The local celebration will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the park, named for a local Civil Rights leader.

Sibby’s Restaurant & Lounge will provide free hamburgers, hot dogs, corn and baked beans.

The GP Vibe Band and Daron Taps Electric Soul will perform.

The Afro-American Historical Association of Fauquier County, ViewTree Lodge 140, the Fauquier NAACP and In A Bein will sponsor the festival.

The festival organizers will post any updates on their Facebook page.
