Gullah Geechee Junkanoo & Fall Plant Sale

Brookgreen’s second Gullah Geechee Junkanoo Festival and Plant Sale will be Saturday, September 21, from 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., at the Wall Lowcountry Center Complex.  A Masquerade and Cultural Celebration, the event will feature music, children’s crafts, informational sessions, food tastings, plant sales, and cultural demonstrations.

Dress is colorful, casual, or Afro-centric. Guests will receive colorful masks, reminiscent of ones worn during Junkanoo, a Bahamian festival of costumes, music, dance, and a celebration of freedom, traditionally held on New Year’s Day.  Gullah Geechee culture is related to Bahamian and other cultures of the African Diaspora.  Brookgreen’s Gullah Geechee Junkanoo Festival celebrates heritage and fall harvests.

Entertainment, tours of Bethea's Garden, demonstrations by sweet grass basket makers and other artisans. Also, choose from hardy "Brookgreen Grown" plants and get fall planting tips from our horticulture staff.
