Join us on the Juneteenth Holiday to honor the contributions of people of color to the growth of Casey Farm in Saunderstown and to Rhode Island. At this family-friendly day, explore the farm on foot or on a hayride. Listen to music by the Nettukkusqk Singers, the URI African Drummers and Dancers, and Sidy Maiga & Afrimanding. Hear Lorén Spears of Tomaquag Museum, Casey Farm’s historians, and R.I. Black Storytellers speak about Indigenous and African American culture. Learn about the region from the Narrow River Preservation Association. The highlight of the day is the unveiling of a R.I. Slave History Medallion on the front lawn.
Bring your chairs or picnic blanket and enjoy lunch purchased from local BIPOC-owned food trucks. Please dress for the weather and leave pets at home.
