Outdoor Events & Festivals

There's nothing better than enjoying the fresh air amongst friends, family and the great outdoors. From foodie events to full-fledged festivals and fireworks, many of the area's best events are outdoors. And we're not talking just about summer concerts and warm-weather events - we have outdoor activities all year round. In the spring, you'll absolutely need to check out the National Cherry Blossom Festival and in the summer there are cookouts and live music galore, but even in the fall and winter, gear up for some of the prettiest light shows, delicious harvest festivals, and sparkling winter wonderlands that you've ever seen.
