Adams Morgan Day 18th Street Festival this Sunday
The Adams Morgan Day 18th Street Festival (located strategically on 18th Street at Columbia Rd and at Florida Ave.) takes place this Sunday and will feature live music acts from all genres from Central and South America, Latin rock, salsa, jazz, to soul, funk and American rock.
First held in 1978, this event showcases the international and cultural diversity and creativity that is the hallmark of Adams Morgan. This Festival celebrates the dynamism and innovation that arises from the melting pot of cultures and their interaction together.
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 - Green Pavilon with purveyors of all things green located together under one large tent!
The Cultural Stage 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.
