Baltimore’s AFRAM returns weekend of Juneteenth

By: De'Avian Powell with SGJC Student News Network

AFRAM will return to Baltimore in-person on June 18th and 19th, also known as ‘Juneteenth’ weekend— a holiday in the U.S. known to celebrate the freedom of enslaved African-Americans.

“AFRAM” is short for African Americans and the festival is a celebration of culture, life and music.

Known as one of the largest African American festivals on the East Coast, the family-oriented event usually draws crowds of over 100,000.

Presented by Baltimore City Recreation & Parks, the festival at Druid Hill Park will feature national entertainment, local food and art vendors, children’s activities, education and wellness resources.

Organizers will post updates and line-up announcements on aframbaltimore.com.

The site will also provide additional information on how to participate, what items are permitted, and information on how to receive medical attention if necessary.
