The second annual Juneteenth Foodways Festival kicks off in Indianapolis June 16. The free festival takes place at the Benjamin Harris Presidential site, with a nod to Chef Dolly Johnson, the first Black chef at the White House, hired by President Harris in the late 1800s.

The festival brings together more than 30 regional Black-owned restaurants and similar vendors, offering menu items reflecting Black foodways throughout American history. In addition to taste-testing your way through these vendors’ amazing eats, you can also enjoy historical reenactments and check out the festival’s retail partners and vendors, cooking demonstrations, and tours of the Benjamin Harris Presidential site.


While the event is free, tickets are still required. Additionally, early-access tickets are available for a minimal fee.
