Juneteenth Family Fun Day will take place this weekend just before Juneteenth, the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States.
The Juneteenth Family Fun Day is where community is invited to come and explore the solar system in UofL’s Rauch Portable Planetarium, participate in puppet-making workshop with puppet master Troy Johnson, and Nana Yaa Asantewaa will perform her “Weaving Webs of Wisdom” in her storytelling circle. This year, they will feature Maker13 and the Maker Mobile. There will also be other fun things for children to enjoy from face painting, snapping it up at the photo booth, Planet Mogul to a bouncy for youth to enjoy. In addition, you can get your competitive spirit on with cards, checkers, chess, cornhole and more!
The Juneteenth Family Fun Day is FREE and open to the public.
The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage is located at 1701 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd in West Louisville.
