The African American Museum of Bucks County announced its upcoming Juneteenth Community Festival. This free family-friendly event takes place at Mayor’s Park in Langhorne on Saturday, June 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The day includes educational speakers, live music, kid-friendly activities and games and food trucks.

The AAMBC is actively seeking vendors from the greater Bucks County, Philadelphia and other neighboring communities for the upcoming event. Vendors’ specialties can range from local businesses, arts organizations, nonprofits, educational institutions or groups, etc. The museum is also seeking volunteers to help with set-up and participation during the event.

“We could not be more excited to throw a Juneteenth celebration for our community. As the first African American Museum in Bucks County, we are well positioned to host this free community festival that commemorates an extremely important event in American history,” said Linda Salley, president and executive director of the AAMBC.

General guidelines for those interested in becoming a vendor are as follows:

  • All vendors must arrive at 9 a.m. to set up
  • Vendors need to be set up and ready for participants at 10 a.m. and are expected to stay until 4 p.m.
  • A 10’x10’ space will be provided for each vendor
  • Pop-up tents are allowed
  • All vendors must always have a representative on site
  • Vendor fee is due in full two weeks prior to the event date (June 8)

Vendors will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit aamuseumbucks.org/events to fill out a vendor application form and submit a registration fee of $50.

The AAMBC is in the midst of its Boone Farm Capital Campaign, which has a fundraising goal of $2 million to transform Boone Farm, a historic 1717 stone building in Langhorne, into an operating museum, where the AAMBC can continue to share untold stories and hidden figures of Bucks County.
