Clarendon Day Cancelled Again
The Clarendon Alliance announced that for the second year in the row Clarendon Day is cancelled. A compressed production timeline, increased costs, staffing changes, and the ongoing concern of Covid-19 and the delta variant make the viability of an event too risky.
Clarendon Day has been one of Arlington’s biggest and best loved street festivals, with several music stages, a large kid’s area, arts and crafts vendors, plenty of great food from local and regional restaurants, Craft beers and Virginia wines, business and nonprofit exhibitors from Clarendon and the region and more.
