Adams Morgan’s annual neighborhood festival is slated to bring crowds to 18th Street NW for food, music, art and games this weekend.
Like in 2015, the road won’t shut down Sunday during Adams Morgan Day, which runs from noon to 6 p.m. But the sidewalks and open spaces nearby will host bands, basketball matches, artists and local businesses.
“We think the day is a great opportunity to showcase our neighborhood’s great outdoor, public spaces and also drive people to explore our variety of restaurants, bars and shops,” Songbyrd Music House and Record Cafe co-owner Alisha Edmonson said in a statement.
