Juneteenth Foodways Festival

Friday, June 16, 2023 4:30 - 8:00 pm EST

MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF ELI LILLY AND COMPANY FOUNDATION 

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

Join us as we help celebrate the many ways in which Black culinary traditions have influenced American culture by exploring the story of White House chef Dolly Johnson and promoting local Black-owned businesses. The public is invited to join us at the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site for this FREE event where they can sample the delectable offerings of our food partners, browse with our retail partners, and learn about Dolly Johnson, the White House Chef hired by President Benjamin Harrison.

Dolly Johnson brought to life through an reenactment in partnership with Freetown Village.

With a wide array of some of Indianapolis’ most delectably diverse food offerings, this event will incorporate Black restaurants and entrepreneurship through Black cuisine and program partnerships with historically Black non-profit partners, and shares the importance of Juneteenth.

Check back soon – Sponsors will be announced by April 14!

Want to get ahead of the crowd? Get your “Early Access Pass” for only $20 and join us from 3:30-4:30 PM!

Any questions? Please reach out to the Special Events and Marketing Manager at events@bhpsite.org.

“Let those who would die for the flag on the field of battle give a better proof of their patriotism and a higher glory to their country by promoting fraternity and justice.” Benjamin Harrison
