Freedom Festival! 2018
September 23, 2018
3:00 - 5:30 p.m.
Restore Cleveland Hope’s Freedom Festival! is a free event for the whole family. It is held in the expansive front yard of the historic Cozad-Bates House at 11508 Mayfield Road in University Circle.
The Cozad-Bates House is the only building or home in the area which was a part of the abolitionist movement and the Underground Railroad. Each year RCH invites Clevelanders to join us as we celebrate the rich history of our anti-slavery past. It was a perilous time in which people took risks to help each other. Freedom Seekers were escaping enslavement and abolitionists were hiding them and helping them on their journey to freedom. Songs were written, coded quilts were sewn and many people headed for Hope, also known as Cleveland.
Through stories, re-enactments, dance and song we remember and learn from the past.
