  1. 2020 Virtual Juneteeth Festival hosted by Johnson House Historic Site – a 13-year old street festival goes virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic

  2. Silent Hike Protest hosted by Hike+Heal – Registration supports two black-owned businesses and a portion of the profits will go to Make the Distinction, a woman owned non-profit for young women. Social distance measures will be take to prevent COVID spread.

  3. Woke Baby Walk – Family friendly event in Penn Treaty Park. Social distance measures will be take to prevent COVID spread.
