Great Weather and these Popular Labor Day Festival Events for 2021!

posted in: Events

Good news! This year Greenbelt’s famous and historic Labor Day Festival is mostly back, after its so-sad cancellation last year due to covid. A big thanks to the hard-working Greenbelt Labor Day Festival Committee!

Check the Schedule (subject to change) and you’ll find these popular events back this year: the PTA Book Sale, the Opening Ceremony with announcement of Citizen of the Year, Bingo, the Craft Fair, the Community Information Day, a huge assortment of sports and games (including some that look new this year, like a zipline and climbing wall), the Pet Show, and the Tour de Greenbelt by bicycle. The parade is ON for Labor Day at 10 a.m., and there WILL be musicians performing in front of the Aquatic Center, though not a full schedule.

The glaring difference will be the absence of the carnival. BUT there will be food trucks, so come on down!

Here are some images of returning events.

Katy Gaughan will be leading her popular Community Drumming at 7:15 pm. on Friday night.

Community Information Day will be held Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm in Roosevelt Center. These images are from 2018.

Fast Eddie and the Slowpokes, shown above, will perform on the outdoor stage from 3 to 6 on Labor Day. I guarantee that people WILL BE DANCING. (And not just me.)

The parade is my personal favorite, and I’ll be there, riding or walking with the New Deal Cafe. We’re told the parade will be scaled back this year but at least it’s BACK!

Perfect Weather is Predicted!

Here’s what the Weather.com prediction late Tuesday for Fri-Mon. Can’t be beat!
