This weekend kicks off with the Greek church food fest at 16th St & Upshur NW.
Also the Egyptian food fest is today & tomorrow at St Mark's in Cabin John, MD, off MacArthur Blvd nr 7 Locks (smaller than the Greek fest, but the kebabs, gyros & pastries are cheaper)
Tomorrow (Sunday) is the annual Italian festival at Villa Rosa on Lottsford Vista Rd in Mitchellville (good place to watch some bocci too).
And since the Hard Times annual chili-cookoff got rain-dated to tomorrow, I think, look for free chili samples at the Rockville festival near the town center (chili cook-off used to be held in Alexandria).
Next weekend 9/24-26 I believe is the middle-East fest at the church on River Rd nr Potomac Village.
And is it also the weekend of the Russian fest at the church on upper NH Ave near White Oak?
Or the Greek fest at 36th & Mass. NW, nr the Cathedral?
Oct. 1-3 is I believe the Greek church fest in 7 Corners on Glen Carlyn Rd.
Oct. 15-16 is the middle-Eastern fest at a church on upper 16th St nr Varnum, NW.
And Columbus Day weekend is the huge, packed Catoctin Colorfest in Thurmont, but some of the surrounding towns like Rocky Ridge have smaller festivals with home cooking at church halls.
That's all I can remember for now!
