King Manor Museum will host its third annual Traditions Festival on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20! 

It's a weekend full of food, music, art, and crafts in Jamaica from the 18th century to modern times, with all the wonderful different cultures in our community! This is a fun event for adults and children, with hands-on activities, demonstrations, and tastings.

Crafts will include early American broom-making, blacksmithing, spinning and carding, loom weaving, costumed hearth cooking, Filipino calligraphy, Mexican dressmaking (and the opportunity to design your own calpulli dress!), Korean cooking, and more. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet artisans, ask questions, and try their hands at crafts from a wide range of cultures, or from a different time!

Live music will be provided by Talking Drums and folk musicians Larry Moser and Mary Nagin. Festival-goers are invited to tour King Manor Museum for free.

Traditions Festival is free to the public and will take place rain or shine.
