Mark your calendars: The second annual Arlington Juneteenth Jubilee will host a variety of events designed to feed the mind, body and spirit.

The three-day event, set for this weekend, includes activities previously planned for this year’s Arlington Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, which was postponed from January because of the coronavirus pandemic. One of the highlights from the Arlington Juneteenth Jubilee will be the premiere of the first episode of the “Echoes from The Hill” docuseries. Other activities will include live music and poetry readings, dancing, shopping, food trucks, an ecumenical service and volunteer opportunities throughout the community. Most of the activities will be held in Downtown Arlington and are free to the public.

“It’s a community celebration filled with fun, food, fellowship and something for everyone,” says Shirley Adams, who has served on the Arlington Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee the past 28 years.
