às̩e̩ Cafe presents a Juneteenth COSTUME Pop-Up Dinner and Celebration! Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the Ending of Slavery in the United States. This Juneteenth COSTUME Pop-Up Dinner will bring guests traditional Juneteenth foods, dance, and music.
Prior to Juneteenth Slaves were unable to dress up. As a result, during the initial days of Juneteenth celebrations the former slaves tossed their ragged garments into creeks and rivers and wore their former masters' finest garments. Costumes from Reconstruction Era (1865-1867) strongly suggested or African attire.
