Inspired by the famous Frederick Douglass speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” the Banneker-Douglass Museum will host a fun summer event that features performances, a Frederick Douglass re-enactment, food/beverage, guided tours of our exhibitions, and family fun and educational arts and crafts activities. Families and community members of all ages and backgrounds will explore topics of freedom, community, art, and history.
Swing into summer with a blast from the past! Enjoy a 1950’s family fun day with lawnmower racing, an antique car and tractor show, kids games and yo-yo craft, live music, food vendors, and museum displays. We’ll have fun for the whole family. Collectors/restorers-bring your classic car, motorcycle or antique tractor for the show.
