Wheaton Arts Parade and Festival on Sunday, Oct. 15

Per Montgomery County: The Wheaton Arts Parade and Festival, a showcase of creative marching art preceding a day of food, fun and entertainment, will return to Downtown Wheaton on Sunday, Oct. 15. The parade annually features exhibits that can be pushed, pulled, carried, worn or performed—but none that is powered by motors of any kind.

The parade, which starts at 10 a.m., traditionally has bands, dance groups, artists and large floats that march around the Wheaton Triangle Business District and finish at the Marian Fryer Town Plaza at 2424 Reedie Dr. in Wheaton. Entries in the parade can be organized by groups of all kinds, and in some cases, by individuals.

The festival area will be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. It will have more than 40 booths of exhibits, including those of artists displaying and selling their original work, community organizations and Montgomery County agencies. Activities will include art making and giveaways. Free art fun in the Kids’ Zone will have face painting and balloon art. Click here to see the exhibitors.

Starting at noon, the festival will have three stages of entertainment including Strathmore artists, dance companies and bands. Oct. 15 will be last day of the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, so festival will include considerable Latin music and dance. It also will feature outstanding Irish music, hip hop and good old rock and roll. Click here to see the performers.
