“Dust off your brown flip flops and get ready for the 13th Annual Clarendon Day,” reads the official press release for Clarendon’s biggest block party (Remy would be proud).
The always-entertaining event, taking place from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25, will feature “food, music, art, fitness classes, kids’ activities, health screenings and more.”
Among the more than 15 local restaurants that will be selling food at Clarendon Day are Whitlow’s, Hard Times Café, Rocklands BBQ, Screwtop Wine Bar, Northside Social, Bakeshop, Liberty Tavern, Lyon Hall, and Kabob Bazaar.
To help work off the soon-to-be-consumed food, the day will start off with the Clarendon Day Run. The run will include a 10K, 5K and a Kid’s Dash. There will also be fitness classes, health screenings and free seated massages throughout the day.
The musical portion of the afternoon will be hosted by IOTA Club and Café. Bands on tap to perform include “tropical pop” group The Constituents, swing band King Teddy’s and rockabilly group Jumpin’ Jupiter.
Kids will have plenty to do, thanks to family-friendly performances at the Kinder Haus Kids’ Stage and the Kaiser Permanente Performance stage. Kids will also be able to take photos with a couple of mascots: the Washington Capitals’ Slapshot and DC United’s Talon.
Another Clarendon Day favorite is the shopping. More than 50 vendors will be selling their wares near the Clarendon Metro.
