Summer solstice fest at Meridian Hill Park on Sunday

Via the 2BloxDC crew, the SACRED DC festival is Sunday from 10:30 am to 7:30 pm. From their Facebook page:

Summer solstice is the first day of summer- the longest day of the year. It marks the transition from Spring to Summer. It is a time of joyous festivals, spiritual renewal and nature worshop in many different cultures. It is also the day which bears the most sunshine. Historically it has been the time of harvesting in many native traditions.

Arts, performances, and healing arts practitioners in the Josephine Butler Center and Malcolm X Park.

There will be a market of delicious cultural foods, mural painting, poetry slam, drum circles, face painting, stilt walking activists, various performances, and art displays throughout the day. In addition, participants can interact and pick up information about the positive work of community organizations throughout DC.
They're looking for volunteers too - vendors, musicians, folks to help out with the fest.
