May 5 – May Revels at BlackRock

Bring in the May at BlackRock SpringFest!

Washington Revels has teamed with BlackRock Center for the Arts to welcome the arrival of Spring with a free afternoon of traditional music, dance and more at the first annual outdoor BlackRock SpringFest. We’re very excited to bring our 35-year celebration of the “greening of the year” to northern Montgomery County! Enjoy a day of entertainment by Revels and regional talent, plus food trucks and arts & crafts vendors.

We’ll kick off May Revels with a fun, colorful procession as our 100-person cast dances and sings through the BlackRock lawn with a bright array of banners, puppets and props, to the exuberant sounds of our “Noisy Band.” Once we’ve reached the outdoor stage, our merry Revelers will sing, dance, and crown this year’s “Monarchs of May” — and at their command, the festivities will really begin! Laugh along with a silly Spring play filled with slapstick humor and bad puns galore, enjoy traditional children’s games and dances from jolly old England, and try to keep up with all the words during the fast-paced, sing-along musical memory challenge Rattlin’ Bog! Kids can even join in on the colorful Maypole dance, and there will be plenty of opportunities for people of all ages to participate throughout the performance.

Join us as we welcome Spring in Germantown!
