Celebrate Gaithersburg

The 32nd Annual Celebrate Gaithersburg Festival will draw an entire community to Gaithersburg’s historic city center. The one-day event is scheduled for THIS SUNDAY - June 8, and will include multiple stages of live entertainment, food, and themed activity areas for all ages and interests. 

Celebrate! Gaithersburg in Olde Towne, the lively street festival taking place in and around Summit and Diamond Avenues from Noon to 5:00pm on Sunday, June 8, promises to be an event with something for everyone.  

A special feature this year is a live Butterfly House.  Walk through an enclosed space filled with beautiful butterflies, delicately revealing their colorful wings.  Don’t be surprised if one even lands on you!  Then step back into the human world to celebrate the butterfly’s free spirit by having your face painted, getting a free butterfly manicure, creating sand art, purchasing handmade jewelry and bird houses, or making a unique craft.

And what’s a festival without great eats?  In addition to the Battley Harley-Davidson BBQ Battle and Dogfish Head Alehouse beer, you’ll also find festival favorites like strawberry shortcake, funnel cakes, fried oreos, kettle corn, soft ice cream, and freshly squeezed lemonade.
