Herndon Festival Prepares to Celebrate 40th Anniversary in May

For the 4oth year, the people around town can enjoy themselves at the upcoming Herndon Festival.

The celebration will take place from May 28- 31 at Northwest Federal Credit Union (200 Spring Street). Events will take place throughout the weekend and many of them will be free according to the event’s website.

For the second year, the festival will be at a new location due to the planned redevelopment in downtown Hernon. Developer Comstock Companies, which is working with town on the project has not broken ground on the project, which was expected to begin in late 2019.

This festival is organized by the Town of Herndon’s Parks and Recreation Department along with local businesses and vendors, the website said.

Activities this year will include entertainment on three stages, a carnival, children’s hands-on art area, arts & crafts show, business expo, 10K and 5K races, a fitness expo and a variety of food vendors, a press release said.

A map of activities and festival layout can already be found online.

Event planners are beginning to release the concert lineups. For example, the alternative-rock band “Broke Royals” will be performing on the Parkway Stage from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 28.

For those who bike to the festival, organizers are offering a free bike valet until 10 p.m., according to the event page.
