The Guinea Heritage Association is committed to preserving the history and values of a unique community we call Guinea. The Guinea Jubilee 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 a fireworks show to end the event. Our festival is always held the last Friday and Saturday in September.


If you are interested in volunteering with the Guinea Jubilee, please fill out the form on our volunteer page. Help is needed in a variety of areas for each day of the festival and Heritage Day.
