The first annual Adams Morgan Apple Festival is happening tomorrow from 10:30-1 at the Adams Morgan Farmer’s market at 18th and Columbia. An heirloom apple tasting kicks it off, then a good old fashioned apple pie contest happens at noon with local foodies (Tim Carman from Washington Post, Andy Shallal, owner, Busboys and Poets, Constantine Stavropoulos of Tryst/Diner/Coupe) judging. There will also be a People’s Choice Award, so if you want to sample some of the best pies and cast your ballot, come early. Work off the apple pie overload by strolling the streets of Adams Morgan listening to 30+ performers sharing their talents from the front porches of homes in the neighborhood. Grab a map at PorchFest headquarters across the street at the BB&T plaza first, or just follow your ears. PorchFest begins at 2 and ends at 6.”
