Juneteenth Foodways Festival

Friday, June 14, 2024 4:30 - 8:00 pm EST

MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF ELI LILLY AND COMPANY FOUNDATION

ON JUNE 14, 2024, COME SEE, TASTE, CELEBRATE AND EXPERIENCE FOR YOURSELF HOW BLACK CUISINE ADDS FLAVOR TO AMERICA’S FAVORITE FOODS.

Save the date for the 3rd annual Juneteenth Foodways Festival!  After the 23rd president of the United States took office in 1889, he made some important changes. He modernized the White House with the installation of electricity. He hired the first woman onto his professional administrative staff. And he fired the French chef working in the White House, and invited renowned Black caterer and chef Dolly Johnson to bring All-American cuisine to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Juneteenth Foodways Festival, made possible through the generosity of Eli Lilly and Company Foundation, highlights the story of Dolly Johnson and shares Black foodways contributions to American culture while supporting local Black-owned businesses.
