Head down to Capitol Hill on Saturday from 11 AM to 5 PM for the Barracks Row Fall Festival. There will be lots to enjoy here: classic cars, a military chef cooking competition, tours of the barracks, a performance by the Trapeze School of New York, and lots of good food and music. They still need volunteers too, so sign up if you’re so inclined.
Neighborhood festivals are one of my favorite things in DC, so I’m pretty happy that the next couple weekends are full of ‘em. Check out the lineup:
- This Sunday from noon to 7 PM is the Adams Morgan Day Festival, a huge gathering with great ethnic food, good bands, a Dance Plaza, a Pet Zone, and even a Green Pavilion. Come hungry, because there is so much great food to try!
- Next weekend on Saturday, September 18 from noon to 6 PM, get ready for the H Street Festival, which features a fashion show, outdoor karaoke, and the can’t-miss art car show. This is a huge festival– over 15,000 people attended last year– so be prepared for crowds.
- The weekend after that, if you’re still craving a neighborhood festival, head over to the Dupont area for the 17th Street Festival on Saturday, September 25 from noon to 6 PM. This newcomer to the neighborhood festival scene will feature an auction tent (with great items like theater tickets and dog walking services up for grabs), musical performances, and a kids zone.
