- Back in 1834, Fox Hill was a small community many miles from the center of town. Residents didn't hear about the declaration of Emancipation until a week after its announcement. Since the Fox Hill residents missed the big party, they decided to hold one of their own. It has grown into a two-week event with street parties, dances and music. The event is scheduled to end on the second Tuesday of August, the actual Fox Hill Day celebration. On that day there are traditional gospel concerts at various churches followed by a festive afternoon serving up the best of native cuisine in Freedom Park and listening to Goombay music.
