Day 179: Events in Bethesda this Weekend

BUP logo

Bethesda Urban Partnership (BUP) is a great resource for planning your weekend activities in Bethesda.  They offer a comprehensive calendar of events and keep things happening in our quaint little town, including festivals, concerts, farmers markets and even outdoor movies.  If you’re looking for fun things to do this weekend, there’s quite a lot to choose from before the 4th of July holiday rolls around.  Here are some highlights of events starting tomorrow, June 30th:

Thursday, 6/30: Dance the night away at the Summer Concert Series at Veteran’s Park featuring the jazz and soulful sounds of LaRue Boogaloo from 6 PM – 8 PM.  Veteran’s Park is located at the corners of Woodmont Ave. and Norfolk and thanks to BUP, the concert is FREE!

Veteran's Park

Friday, 7/1: Enjoy live music and an outdoor Dance Concert at Bethesda Metro Center at the corner of Wisconsin Ave. & Old Georgetown Rd. from 6 PM – 9 PM.  This event is also FREE.

Saturday, 7/2: Laugh til you cry at Laugh Riot at the Hyatt.  This live standup comedy show will feature engineers, government employees and IRS agents who moonlight as local comics.  Actually, I’m just kidding about that but the comics are actually locals so it wouldn’t surprise me if you did have the garden variety Housewife of Bethesda up there!  (Check out our blog from Day 53 for details.)  The Hyatt Regency Hotel is located  at 7400 Wisconsin Ave.  The show costs $10 and begins at 8 PM.


Farm Market Veggies

Sunday, 7/3: Pop in to visit the local farm markets and enjoy the chance to meet the farmers themselves and take home some of the freshest fruits and veggies of the season.  The Bethesda FRESHFARM Market is located at Norfolk Ave. between Fairmont & St. Elmo Aves. The market is open from 9am-1pm and FREE to attend.  The Bethesda Central Farm Market is on Elm St. between Woodmont & Wisconsin also from 9am-1pm and also FREE…well, that is, until you buy something.  And I promise you will buy something.  🙂

We plan to feature details in a future blog about 4th of July events in our area, but in the meantime, enjoy the beautiful weekend ahead!     ~Amy
