Takoma Park’s Street Festival, cancelled due to Hurricane Joaquin, has been rescheduled for Sunday, October 18.

The hurricane veered away from Takoma Park, but wet and windy conditions threatened to discourage attendance October 4, the original date.

The festival, dubbed “Takoma Park Street Festival Version 2.0,” will still offer arts and crafts, children’s activities, music, food, non-profit and green business booths and more.

The Crawl is back, also. Discounted beverages – alcoholic, caffeinated, and other types – will be served to special mug-holders at local restaurants, cafes and bars. Mugs are on sale now at Republic and Trohv and on the day of the festival at the festival info booth.

The festival will not be hosting the original band line up, but 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.

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 is free.
