Benefitting Living Classrooms of the Capital Region
Nestled between the banks of the Anacostia River lies a park dedicated to preserving natural resources and educating District youth about conservation and becoming better stewards of the natural world. Voted Best Music Festival in DC by City Paper readers, the Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival will return for the 9th time to join the District in celebrating the #YearOfTheAnacostia at this highly-anticipated benefit event.
Headlining an impressive lineup of nearly two dozen bluegrass, folk, and Americana artists will be Ganstagrass, Cris Jacobs, and a very exciting showcase, The American Songster Revue (featuring Dom Flemons, Guy Davis, Amythyst Kiah, and Kamara Thomas).
The festival will also feature delicious local cuisine from your favorite food trucks, craft beer, cocktails, local merchants, and fun for all ages through various outdoor activities, a kids’ zone with Baba Ras D, and much more.
As the District's premier Zero-Waste Festival, we ask that all attendees support our mission to keep the island clean and refrain from bringing disposable water bottles, food containers, etc. and please be conscientious when disposing of your trash at our Zero Waste Stations spread throughout the island. #ZeroWasteDC
