Weekend Fun for DC Kids: Festivals, Fun Runs, Theater May 18-19, 2019

This weekend, our events calendar is blooming with fun ideas and events for families. Enjoy the warm spring days with  a number of family-friendly festivals, from books in Maryland to a celebration of Asian culture in DC. Or perhaps a fun run is more your family's speed? There are 5k and shorter options this weekend to get you and yours working up a sweat for a good cause.

Head indoors to take in a theater show perfect for the littles or for your inner big green ogre. Need more ideas for the weekend? Check out our events calendar for more happenings.
