Emancipation Day Weekend

Saturday, October 31 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Celebrate the day in 1864 when Maryland changed its constitution to abolish slavery six months before the end of the Civil War.

The day will include an emancipation-themed self-guided tour of the farm and Slave Cemetery accessible by your phone through our QR portal. Scavenger hunts, farm animals, hands-on history and musical acts will help to round out the day.

You can reserve your parking space through Eventbrite.
