The 31st Annual Adams Morgan Day Festival featured two large signature music stages and other innovative and dynamic cultural, music, arts and dance activities. The famous Columbia and Florida Stages, located at the top and bottom respectively of the Adams Morgan 18th Street strip, showcased live music acts from all genres from Central and South America, Latin rock, salsa, jazz, and soul—including reggeaton artist Cristopolis and funk rockers Funkmnkyz. The festival is the longest continuous neighborhood festival in Washington and D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty dropped by to greet supporters as well as his father, Philip, who is the owner of Adams Morgan’s Fleet Feet running store. The festival consistently draws large attendance in the 25,000 range, and this year’s edition was no different.
