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.
