We cordially invite you to join us for this year’s Guinea Heritage Day. Be the first to find out who this year’s Grand Marshal is, preview our new print, and purchase the 2018 Guinea Jubilee t-shirt. And don’t forget to bring money so you can take your shot at being the high bidder for the #1 print!
The Guinea Jubilee sponsors an art contest for adults and children each year. The winner of the adult art contest has their artwork turned into prints that are sold during the Jubilee. These prints have become collectors’ items. The original artwork is auctioned off to help fund the Guinea Jubilee. The winner of the children’s art contest has their artwork featured on the cover of the Guinea Jubilee events program. Individual grade winners are featured within the events program.
At the reception, you will have the opportunity to purchase various collectible items. Each year the Guinea Jubilee Committee selects a different T-shirt design for the festival. The T-shirts, along with wooden collectibles of various buildings around Guinea, artist prints, and Guinea Jubilee memorabilia will be on display. Start your Guinea collection today.
The history and story of Guinea is displayed throughout the Ruritan hall during the reception. You will have the chance to learn about the wonderful history of these watermen and their families. Each display contains a piece of the past that helped shape this beautiful part of Virginia.
