About The Festival
EVENT IS RESCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2015, 10:00am-5:00pm
Hurricane Joaquin may have made a mess of our original plans, but we are back with a new date for 2015! The 34th Annual Takoma Park Street Festival, Version 2.0, will take place on Sunday, October 18, 2015 from 10am-5pm in Takoma on Carroll Avenue in Takoma Park, MD to Carroll Street, NW in Takoma, DC.
The festival continues to include a talented mix of local artists offering a great opportunity for visitors to get a head start on holiday shopping for paintings, photographs, pottery, silk-screening, soaps, stained glass, jewelry, woodworking, textiles, ceramics, kids’ items and much more.
Non-profits, green companies and a variety of food trucks and food vendors will also participate. Takoma’s indie businesses will be open and welcoming visitors. Kids will love the festival with crafts, face painting, inflatables and FUN! Plus a free concert by kid’s performer, Mr. Gabe at 11am at the Gazebo Stage.
Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, the festival will not be hosting the original band line up. Takoma Park children’s performer, Mr. Gabe, will kick off the day at the Gazebo stage at 11am and other surprise guests may make appearances throughout the day.
