Herndon Festival 2018

The threat of raindrops couldn’t keep the festive throngs away from Herndon this past Saturday during its annual festival of food, arts, music and fun. Founded in 1980, this annual celebration takes place in and around downtown Herndon’s Municipal Center complex and historic Town Hall Square (although next year’s festival is slated to change locations). The festival attracts over 80,000 people over its four days, featuring a carnival, three stages of entertainment, a 10K/5K race and fitness expo, children’s hands-on art area, kids’ alley, business expo, two nights of fireworks, arts and crafts vendors, and an assortment of food vendors. We caught an array of musical talent on Saturday including Haley Fahey, Adrian + Meredith, Jason Morton and the Chesapeake Sons, Shane Gamble, Eli Lev and the Fortunes Found, Animal Sun, and River Whyless.
