Clarendon Day Details Revealed

We’re one month away from the 2010 iteration of Clarendon Day, the outdoor event that’s billed as “Arlington’s biggest party.”

Clarendon Day 2010 will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 25.

For runners, three Pacers-sponsored races will be held before the start of the festival: A 5K at 8:20 a.m., a 10K at 9:00 a.m. and a kid’s dash at 10:30 a.m. (Register here.)

The main event will feature music on two stages, more than 50 vendors and food from more than 15 restaurants, including Whitlow’s, Hard Times Cafe, Rocklands, Screwtop Wine Bar, Northside Social and Bakeshop. There will also be art, fitness classes, kids’ activities, health screenings, dancing and more.

Clarendon Day and Virginia Hospital Center Foundation’s Family Fun Day have been combined into one event this year, allowing for more kid-friendly events. The kids’ activities will include climbing walls, games and — we hear — an ice cream eating contest.

The festivities are all taking place in the area around the Clarendon Metro station.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Doorways for Women and Families, the Clarendon Alliance and the Virginia Hospital Center Foundation.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
