Last year was a great time. I definitely think it is worth checking out.

The Adams Morgan Day Festival Web site says:

“The Adams Morgan Day 18th Street Festival is characterized by two large signature music stages and other innovative & dynamic cultural, music, arts and dance activities. The famous Columbia and Florida Stages (located strategically on 18th Street at Columbia Rd and at Florida Ave.) feature live music acts from all genres from Central and South America, Latin rock, salsa, jazz, to soul, funk and American rock.

Adams Morgan Day showcases the local business area
as an ethnic, eclectic retail, entertainment and restaurant locale.

•Arts on Belmont has long been a popular draw with its high quality of original artisans and range of media exhibited: glassware and metalwork, paintings, jewelry, sculpture & photography. Nestled on shade tree lined street of historic town homes, Arts on Belmont is a beautiful venue with articles in all price ranges.

•New in 2009 is the Green Pavilon with purveyors of all things green located together under one large tent! The Green Pavilon is near the Kids Area on the Marie Reed School field. Another new feature also originated by Adams Morgan Main Street in 2005, is the dynamic Dance Plaza (located on the grounds of the Marie Reed School) with interactive dance workshops that encourage audience participation, and cover the range and styles of many cultures.

•The Cultural Stage (located at Unity Park-Columbia Rd and Euclid St.NW) also boasts a variety of acts, including poetry, theater, dance and music, even the Sitar Arts Center of Adams Morgan. Jazz Oasis in the Park was new in 2007. For residents with children who may want a quieter, more contained area, Kalorama Park is the place to sit on a bench, spread a blanket, listen to quality jazz

•The new festival layout originated by AdamsMorgan Main Street in 2004 highlights the neighborhood scale architecture and leaves all the business storefront façades visible to festival.”
