Celebrate Spring at the National Cathedral Flower Mart, sponsored by the All Hallows Guild!

We will once again “bring in the May” as part of the annual All Hallows Guild Flower Mart–a popular two-day festival since 1939. DC’s favorite spring outdoor family event features plants, herbs, food, puppet shows, carousel rides, boutiques and entertainment for the whole family.

Washington Revels will present a show celebrating the “greening of the year” traditional song and dance, the crowning of a May Queen, a festive Maypole dance (with an opportunity for you to join in the fun!), children’s singing games, a colorful procession with music, banners, puppets, and more.

Welcome Spring!
