Best Washington DC Summer Festivals in 2017

Best Washington DC Summer Festivals in 2017

As the weather starts warming up, Washington DC is full of fun and exciting festivals to suit everyone’s tastes. Kicking things off in May, and running every Friday through October, is a festival just for foodies: Truckeroo. Food trucks from all over the DC area can be found at the Fairgrounds at Yards Park serving up a wide assortment of flavor meals, snacks, and treats.

If you are into bluegrass music, you should check out both the Kingman Island Bluegrass and Folk Festival, held on May 13th, and the Summer Escape at Mount Vernon on June 9th and 10th. For jazz lovers, the DC Jazz Festival runs from June 9th through the 18th.

To take in a diverse range of food, arts, crafts, books, and other items from American and international cultures, you will want to make sure to put the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on your calendar, which runs from June 29 through July 4th and, again, from July 6th to the 9th. There are cooking demos, exhibits, live music, and more to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this year’s festival.

This is just a sampling of the numerous types of festivals planned for the summer season in Washington DC. To ensure you get to enjoy all the exciting events, you may want to rent an apartment at The Hamilton House in DC from Keener Management.
