ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Down in the Reeds is a day-long Fall celebration and music festival Happening on Saturday Oct 19th.
Our mission is to create an outdoor Fall gathering that brings together a mosaic of entertainment and activations reflective of DC’s cultural diversity and in celebration of the healing power of music. The ability of music to heal at the micro and macro level is one of music’s fundamental characteristics, bridging race, culture, and socio-economic status across all Wards. This one-day celebration seeks to highlight that common experience through performances from some of DC’s most vibrant musicians as well as workshops, arts ACTIVATIONS, community & Family engagement and more.
