(June 18-27) GETTYSBURG FESTIVAL Including a trek to the battlefield bounty that is the Gettysburg Festival, today through next Sunday in Adams County, PA. You can discover the civil side of Gettysburg through a smorgasbord of concerts, dinners and exhibits. The food is the reason for this season, as the festival's culinary lineup features top-drawer chefs, local produce, and edible art.

(June 19) ART IN THE PARK If you want to keep it local, check out Juneteenth Art in the Park at the Fort Dupont Activity Center tomorrow in Southeast DC. The free event commemorates the abolition of slavery while celebrating the arts with musical performances and artwork by the young people of Wards 7 and 8.

(June 20) REVEL IN THE SUNFEST And there's no better way to celebrate the Sun this Sunday than the Revels SunFest from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Ellsworth Street Plaza in Silver Spring, Maryland. The Washington Revels present a golden opportunity to take in some culture and bust out some moves with a free performing arts festival based on summer celebrations from around the world.
