Anacostia River Festival
11th Street Bridge Park and National Park Service present the annual Anacostia River Festival, a premier event and official closing of the 2016 National Cherry Blossom Festival. This year’s Festival celebrates the natural world by focusing on the Anacostia River, its history, ecology, and the communities along its riverbanks. Activities include: art exhibits, musical performances, rowing/paddling, fishing workshops, and other unique programs to engage families with the environment. Held at Anacostia Park, this FREE event will encourage District residents and tourists alike to explore communities and parks east of the river.
