The Harriet Tubman Banquet celebrates the life of Harriet Tubman — a freedom fighter, scout, spy, nurse an abolitionist born here in Dorchester County. The banquet happens on Saturday, March 9, in Cambridge, Maryland.

This year’s theme is “A Homecoming Celebration for Harriet Tubman” and will feature a musical tribute to those in Dorchester County who were among the first to work tirelessly to keep her legacy alive. There will be musical selections from two groups — the Barry Foreman Trio and the Spiritual Vessels out of Hurlock.

The event runs from 2:45pm to 5:30pm at the Elks Lodge #223 at 618 Pine Street, Cambridge, MD 21613.

The event is sponsored by the Harriet Tubman Organization, Inc., which operates the volunteer-run Harriet Tubman Museum, the place that has been preserving and promoting Tubman’s legacy for more than 30 years.

Tickets cost $30 per person. To purchase tickets, call Bill Jarmon at 301-221-1732, the Harriet Tubman Museum (during open hours only; Tuesday through Saturday, 12-3pm) at 410-228-0401 or Donald Pinder at 410-330-1185.
