Bethesda is the Best in October

Bethesda is truly a wonderful place to be in the fall and there is no better time than the month of October.  The leaves begin to change color and the air cools off but remains warm enough to sport a light sweater or jacket and a comfy light scarf.  Take a walk on the ever-popular Capital Crescent Trail and perhaps you’ll spot a deer, a fox or an owl hovering in the trees.  Oh, and there’s always pumpkin this-and-that to grab at one of the 180+ area restaurants.  C’mon, you know you want that taste of fall no matter how cliche!

Looking for something to do besides eating and drinking in Bethesda?  For you more adventurous types, check out our concerts, classes, exhibits and events around town at the non-profit Bethesda Urban Partnership or “BUP”.  Established in 1994, the organization creates and promotes a variety of  events and festivals for the community.

One of our favorite events is the upcoming Bethesda Row Arts Festival scheduled this year for Saturday, October 15th, 2016 from 11 AM -6 PM and Sunday, October 16th, 2016 from 10 AM – 5 PM.  The event is FREE…. What’s not to love?!

Oh right, you won’t love the parking!  Perhaps try parking just outside of town at the Bethesda Pool and walking into town on the Capital Crescent Trail (about 1/2 mile).  At this time of year, it’s a perfect stroll and you’ll pop right out onto Bethesda Ave in the heart of the festival.  Enjoy!
