The Guinea Heritage Association’s mission is to preserve the history and values of the unique community called Guinea. The Guinea Jubilee – Gloucester’s Fall Event” – is a two-day event that annually attracts thousands of people to celebrate and honor the way of life in the Guinea Neck. The Jubilee features cultural activities, arts and crafts exhibits, a parade, delicious seafood, and fireworks to end the event. The festival is always held the last Friday and Saturday in September.


We welcome volunteers to help on Guinea Heritage Day as well as during the Festival. Help set up at events, sell merchandise, greet people – become a part of our team!
