Crossroads Spring Fest

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 from newly opened Silver Branch Brewery or a Basil, Jalepeno Mezcal Margarita. 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 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.

Festival Mainstage
1-2:30pm: Live Performance by Ocho de Bastos (Eight of Clubs). A Latin Pop Rock Band with a unique guitar sound blended with powerful drums, Latin percussion, and catchy brass riffs.

3-4pm: Enjoy a live performance by Africa Unplugged, using traditional percussion instruments from West Africa to make funky, soulful dance music and tell stories from the old world and the new.

4:30-6pm: La Unica, “the one and only”, a pan-genre party band fusing Irish folk and Latin Rhythms. “Melting Pot Grooves.”
