Join us for SpringFest an international festival of food, crafts, and culture. Experience the best in ethnic-cuisine from the Takoma/Langley Crossroads, featuring local restaurants serving up their top dishes and market vendors selling a variety of tasty treats and beverages. Pair that with a beer or wine from our drink tent. Settle in for a day of lively live-music and dancing at the festival mainstage, featuring some of the best local talent in the world-music scene. Family friendly fun includes facepainting, and jugglers!
We are excited to include a live art demonstration at this year’s SpringFest.
Guatemalan artist Ubaldo Sanchez will create an “Alfombras de Aserrin” “Sawdust Carpet.” A traditional springtime activity in Latin America where colored sawdust is laid-out on the ground creating brightly colored patterns and designs like a carpet. https://festival.si.edu/blog/alfombras-de-aserrin-guatemalan-sawdust-carpets
