The festival will feature live art demos, a sound installation, kid's activities, tabling by various local groups and a performance by Antelope (at 5pm). Lamont Park is located at Mount Pleasant and Lamont Streets NW, in Washington, DC.

Over the last ten years a private citizens group pressured all the neighborhood's restaurants to give up their ability to host live , even acoustic music. Now a range of artists, musicians and community groups are fighting back and trying to overturn the ban and bring back the ability of restaurants to host music in a responsible way.

'Hear Mount Pleasant' is organizing a series of mini-festivals this year to build support for the campaign and to showcase the contributions musicians and artists make to building vibrant communities.
