Preview: Food, Music and Fun at Clarendon Day

The start of Clarendon Day 2010 is less than 24 hours away, and already the excitement is brewing. This year’s event will include a performance by “Arlington Rap guy” Remy Munasifi, a burrito eating contest and 20 different food vendors.

Things will kick off Saturday at 8:20 a.m. with a 5K race, followed by a 10K and a Kids Dash.

Then at 11:00 a.m., the main festivities get underway.

Ten bands are set to perform on two different stages. Acts scheduled to perform on the main IOTA Club & Cafe Stage include:

  • Milkshake — Kid-oriented rock music
  • Love Canon — A “power 80’s glam bluegrass” band (perhaps an ironic selection to follow a children-oriented group)
  • Sons of Bill — Rock/alt-country
  • Honor By August — Rock/pop
  • GoRemy — The aforementioned Arlington Rap guy, whose new album includes The Metro Song and the Falafel Song

Clarendon Day also features dozens of art, retail and community booths. Among the organizations setting up shop will be WJFK (“106.7 The Fan”) and WJLA/TBD (ABC 7).

If you get hungry in between the music and the shopping, you could enter the burrito eating contest at 3:00 p.m. Or you could visit the booths of the following restaurants:

  • Artisan Confections
  • Clarendon Grill
  • Crepe Deli
  • District Taco
  • Grace’s Pastries
  • Hard Times
  • La Tasca
  • Liberty Tavern
  • Lyon Hall
  • Northside Social
  • Mac’s Donuts
  • Mexicali Blues
  • Ragtime
  • Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company
  • Screwtop Wine Bar
  • Smoothie King
  • Tallula
  • Whitlow’s on Wilson
  • 3 Bar & Grill
  • Zelda’s NoVA Soul
