Art Hop Takoma

Join us for this special weekend when we transform Takoma into a lively arts district showcasing the work of local artists. We’ll match artists with our local businesses to display their work over the weekend of April 28-29, 2018.  You will find ceramics, digital art, drawing, fiber arts, glass, jewelry, metalwork, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, woodworking and more offered for sale at a variety of price points. Enjoy live outdoor music and dance performances and meet-the-artist receptions all weekend too.

Visitors can grab an Art Hop Map from any of the participating businesses and explore art at their own pace while taking in “Meet-the-Artist” receptions, workshops and live performances all weekend. The Art Hop Map doubles as a punch card which will be stamped at each Art Hop Stop location and may be turned in at the Art Hop Info Booth to be eligible for prize drawings!

Presented by the Old Takoma Business Association, Your Main Street Takoma. Voted Best Main Street in the Best of DC 2018 by the Washington City Paper!

Volunteers  – we need you!

 

Ever wanted to see how a street festival comes together? Now’s your chance! The 37th annual Takoma Park Street Festival is back this year on October 7th from 10 am to 5 pm and needs volunteers. With over 200 artists, local businesses, and community groups, along with three stages bursting with music, the hustle is on starting at 7:30 am. Not a morning person? Consider coming in the late afternoon instead. SSL hours offered!

AM jobs:

Good at giving directions? Guide vendors to their booth spaces. Enjoy catching a first glimpse of their goods? Help unload. Handy with canopy tents? Vendors always love a helping hand with those. See the stages and food court come together while assembling tables and chairs.

PM jobs:

Vendors need to pack up and head out by 6 pm, and always can use extra hands to do so after a long day. Tents need to come down, cars need to be guided out.

The signup will post in September. To be added to the volunteer signup mailing list, please email takomaparkstreetfestival@gmail.com.

Zero Waste

We’re going Zero Waste again at the festival this year! We’ll be composting, recycling and donating our way through another great event.

What is Zero Waste?

The goal of a Zero Waste is to reduce the amount of resources and food waste used at the festival. We’ve included resource reduction into the planning of the festival, educated our vendors on acceptable serviceware, and are offering our vendors resources to recycle or donate their post-event waste. We’ve also incorporated resource recovery and waste stations stations throughout the event so that our festival attendees can easily and properly dispose of any waste (also see What You Can Do Below).

What Our Vendors Will Do
Food Vendors:

  • Offer only compostable dish and flatware and drinkware.
  • Recycle/compost food and paperware that cannot be donated.

All Vendors:

  • Recycle any cardboard boxes used to transport their products in our cardboard recycling station, post event.

Festival Attendees – What You Can Do

  • Bring your own refillable water bottle – we’ll have a water bottle refill station located at the event.
  • Bring your own drinkware and seviceware.
  • Follow the instructions of our 3 part waste receptacles located throughout the festival which will be separated by Recycling (plastic and cans), Composting (food waste and compostable packaging) and Garbage (landfill-bound – let’s minimize this!)
