Anacostia River Festival



 Sunday April 12, 2015, 12-4PM in Anacostia Park

11th Street Bridge Park and National Park Service present the first annual Anacostia River Festival, a premier event and official closing of the 2015 National Cherry Blossom Festival. This year’s Anacostia River Festival celebrates the natural world by focusing on the Anacostia River, its history, ecology, and the communities along its riverbanks. Activities include: hands-on art projects, musical performances, boating, fishing workshops, tours of historic Anacostia, bike parades, and other unique programs to engage families with the environment. Held in the Anacostia Park, this free event will encourage District residents and tourists alike to explore communities and parks east of the river.
