Ticket Price: 

First organized in 1972 Family Day has been an annual event in the north end community of Winchester and was created to unite black families & their neighbors. The annual event continues to bring the now multi-cultural north end community together for a weekend of education, fun and entertainment.

Three Family Day Events

  1. To kick off the weekend of events, there is a FREE POOL PARTY at Jim Barnett Park in Winchester (1001 E. Cork Street) on Friday, July 29, 2022.
  2. Saturday, we have an evening of praise & worship at the Frederick Douglass Park (behind Douglass School at 598 N. Kent Street) on August 6, 2022.
  3. The "main" Family Day event is always the first Sunday in August and draws a crowd of 600-800 residents. Throughout the day spectators, participants, young and old enjoy a variety of fun. There's music, face painting, old fashioned backyard games, athletic games, vendors, a Resource Fair and much more. This all-day event is FREE including a children’s lunch.

Frederick Douglass Park Club is a non-profit community group that relies on generous donations from the community throughout the year to host these events.
