Organizers of Adams Morgan Day 2017 have announced the lineup for the festival’s Columbia Stage and are continuing their online fundraising campaign.

The 39th annual celebration of Adams Morgan’s history, culture, arts, music, restaurants, businesses and residents will take place from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday along 18th Street and Columbia Road NW. Part of 18th Street will be closed to motor vehicles to create space for vendors, an interactive artists alley and live music.

Participating Adams Morgan businesses and nonprofits will offer discounts and special food and drink menus. Activities will include exercise classes, T-shirt tie-dying, “corn hole” and discounts on self-service dog washing. Visual artists will be featured at exhibits and booths.

The lineup at the Columbia Road Stage, presented by Songbyrd Music House and Record Café, ranges from the female-fronted indie psych-rock group NAH at noon to the local brass band Dupont Brass at 5 p.m. Mayor Muriel Bowser will make remarks at 1 p.m. The lineup for the Kalorama Road Stage, presented by GrowClub DC, will be announced soon, according to the release.
