Pinkster Festival 2023

Sat, Jun 10, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 5:30 pm

We are excited to be partnering with Chief Baba Neil Clarke for a second year to bring the festival of Pinkster to Weeksville on Sat, June 10 from 12-5:30pm!

Celebrated over several days, Pinkster’s origins tell the story of the resilience of New York’s enslaved people, who were determined to maintain community and resist bondage. Its history is rooted in radical resistance, independence and faith, and we are honored to keep this tradition alive.

The day-long event will feature a Pinkster reenactment, quilting, mancala, a popular, ancient game played across Africa and opportunities to learn more about the history of Black foodways, folkways, and music histories. This event is free and open to the public.
