Maryland Emancipation Day
Saturday, October 31, 2020 @ 12-3PM
Celebrate the day in 1864 when Maryland changed its constitution to abolish slavery six months before the end of the Civil War. This outdoor, open-air, event includes 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.
This is our final Open House weekend for the season at Button Farm. Fresh air and social distancing/PPE protocols will be in place. Parking is $10 per vehicle. Go to our Eventbrite link to learn more and reserve your parking space today!
