I guess I’ve always known DC has been a festival city but I never really appreciated just how many festivals we host until this year. Just off the top of my head – H St, NE, Adams Morgan, Barracks Row, Cleveland Park, Mt. Pleasant Fiesta, Georgia Ave/Caribbean Day, Crafty Bastards, Greek Festival, Turkish Festival, Cherry Blossom, Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Capitol Jazz Fest, National Book Festival, Capitol Pride, Fiesta Asia!, Dance DC Festival, Festa Italiana, and Duke Ellington Jazz Festival. Many are listed here. Did I leave any big ones out?
Perhaps picking only one is impossible, if that’s the case, what are your top three?
I’m gonna vote Georgia Ave/Caribbean Day, Mt. Pleasant Fiesta ( this Sunday) and Folklife Festival. You?
