Buffalo Soldiers, Frontier Army, Fun Activities and interactive stories, Juneteenth

Celebrate Juneteenth with the Buffalo Soldiers at Booker T Washington Park. We'll have interactive games, historical interpretation, outdoor skills, and fun for audiences of all ages. Explore our Buffalo Soldier camp, and listen to stories about the lives of these trailblazing soldiers—view displays of artifacts and tools, discover how to track an animal, learn Native American skills, or even play a round of early frontier baseball! You never know what our Buffalo Soldiers will bring with them on the trail. They may not be back in these parts for a while, so make sure you head on down for a visit and experience the connections between history and the great outdoors!

See you further down the trail….
