When and Where is the Celebration?
Join us on Saturday, June 24 at the Clemmons Family Farm for an all-ages multicultural family picnic in celebration of the 4th annual Loving Day Vermont and the 50th anniversary of Loving v. Virginia, the case that struck down all laws against interracial marriage in the U.S.! The event will include lawn games, a drum circle, and a time to speak out on what Loving Day means to you!
Please bring your do-it-yourself picnic items (lawn chairs, blankets, dinner and drinks, lawn games, portable instruments and bug spray)! Please also bring extra plastic or paper bags to take any trash or leftovers away with you.
Admission is free with suggested donation of $5 per person or $15 per family. Donations will go toward helping keep the Clemmons Family Farm venues available for community events like this one.
