May Revels at BlackRock SpringFest
May 5 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
BlackRock Center for the Arts and Washington Revels have partnered to welcome the arrival of Spring with a FREE afternoon of traditional music, dance and more at the first annual outdoor BlackRock SpringFest, culminating in May Revels. The fun will kick off with a colorful procession as our 100-person cast parades through the BlackRock lawn with a bright array of banners, puppets and props. Once we’ve reached the outdoor stage, we’ll share Spring songs and dances and crown this year’s “Monarchs of the May”: at their command, the festivities will really begin! Laugh along at a silly mummers play, enjoy traditional children’s games and dances from jolly old England, and try to keep up with all the words during the fast-paced sing-along, “Rattlin’ Bog”! Kids can even join in on the colorful Maypole dance, and there will be plenty of opportunities for people of all ages to participate throughout the performance.
