Adams Morgan Day Set for This-Coming Sunday

Mark your calendars for the 33rd annual entertainment and food-filled Adams Morgan Day Festival on Sunday, September 11th between 12 noon and 7 pm, with the Arts on Belmont area to open at 10 a.m.

Once again hosted and organized by Adams Morgan Main Street, the festival will be centered along 18th from Columbia Road down to Florida Avenue.

While enjoying the company of friends and neighbors and the varied entertainment, food from vendors and the sidewalk cafés and restaurants that line the street will enhance the event.

Two signature stages, at Columbia Road and Florida Avenue, will once again be presenting a wide variety of  music. The Columbia Road stage will feature music in the American tradition — blues, bluegrass, rock, jazz, funk and Afro, including the Big Woo, Neo Groove, and Cheick Hamala Diabate. At the Florida Avenue stage international and Latin music will be featured, such as  Irish, Latin, Caribbean, Brazilian reggae, calypso steel, and Cuban salsa.

As in previous years, the Arts on Belmont area garners special attention for its original works in all media and opportunity to meet the artists. On shady residential Belmont Road, works in oil, watercolor, metal, textiles, clay, and wood will be featured and available for sale.

New acts at the interactive Dance Plaza will feature the Jinga Dance Fitness and Hula Zombie; Furia Flamenca’s colorful costumes lead into DC Hippodrome and Capoiera; rounding out the international line-up will be Zezah Samba, DC Casineros, and the Dance Institute of Washington.

The Kids’ Fair Cultural Stage will host diverse acts opening with Japanese Shishi Dog, kids hula, story time, and Kids Punk Rock. Indonesian Martial Arts & Dance lead into Jazz Techo and Spanglish Theater Group and Spoken Word. The grand finale closing is by Kid Goat.

The newer Health Pavilion will showcase health, sports, fitness, diet, and spas at 18th and California Streets and at the Green Pavilion, festival-goers will find under one large tent products, samples and services covering everything eco-friendly including recycled art, office and home products, and solar panels.
