EdVenture Children’s Museum will be hosting local African American artists to celebrate Juneteenth this Saturday, June 19, 2021, at our Columbia location (211 Gervais Street). Also featured in the day’s activities will be Gordon, from Auntie Karen Foundation’s cast of characters, who will launch the celebration of freedom at 10:30 am, and will lead the children and their families in a new dance and sharing Gordon’s latest coloring book adventures! At the top of each hour, another artist will continue the excitement, and Columbia SC 63 will be on hand to share more information about Civil Rights History.
The event is free with museum admission; tickets can be reserved at edventure.org.
