To Do: Takoma Park Street Festival

If you haven’t been to Carroll Avenue—home to a slew of charming craft stores and vintage boutiques—then make your way there on Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM to shop, eat and, well, shop at the 26th Annual Takoma Park Street Festival. About 130 potters, woodworkers, fabric artists and painters will set up tents of their work (rule: you can only sell it if it’s handmade), joined by shopkeepers from Takoma favorites like Amano boutique and the Big Bad Woof, an eco-friendly pet store. Check out each end of the festival (it runs from Willow to Columbia avenues on Carroll) for live rock, jazz and blues from local bands and festival-perfect food, including fresh-squeezed lemonade, crab cakes and fried plantains. I can almost smell the funnel cake from here.
