Tomorrow and Sunday, come rain or shine (and its looking like shine – 80* and sunny!) The Folklore Society of Greater Washington will present its 29th Annual Washington Folk Festival.  The event, which features dozens of performers on 7 stages, will take place from noon to 7 p.m. both days at Glen Echo Park in Maryland. There will also be many artisans present as well, peddling their wares — everything from homemade soap to Swedish painting to “Wine Bottle Art” (my favorite kind of art). Though there is limited parking at the site, GEICO is apparently providing satellite parking and a shuttle from their campus near the Friendship Heights Metro Station.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.
