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.
