The Annual Greenbelt Labor Day Festival is this weekend. There's always a lot to see and do, but we hope you'll have a chance to include the Museum in your Labor Day plans! The Museum's activities over the weekend are below. Click here to see the complete Greenbelt Labor Day Festival Schedule.
North End Walking Tour
Saturday, September 3, 9am
Join us for a free walking tour of Greenbelt's fascinating North End. Space is limited and you must pre-register via Eventbrite. The tour leaves from the parking lot of the Greenbelt Elementary School. In the event of inclement weather, you'll be notified via Eventbrite.
Retro Town Fair
Sunday, September 4, 1-4pm
Our Retro Town Fair is much like those the earliest Greenbelters enjoyed starting in 1939. Ribbons will be awarded for the best entries in a number of categories, including flowers, vegetables, baked goods, canned goods, and needlework/sewing. Entries accepted 10-11:30am. Winners on display 1-4pm. All items must be picked up between 4-5pm. All of the information you'll need and to enter is on our entry form. Click here or on the photo above.
Historic House Tours
Sunday, September 4, 2-4pm
Come by for a quick house tour! The Museum house is open for short tours in conjunction with the Retro Town Fair. We often have a lot of people coming through, so we can't do our regular longer format tours, but you can take a peek to see how a typical Greenbelt family would have lived in the late 30s to the early 50s. Free!
Labor Day Parade
Monday, September 5, 10-12pm
The Museum is participating in the Annual Labor Day Parade this year. Keep an eye out for us as we promote our plans for the Education and Visitor Center at 10A Crescent. (We'll have candy, too!)
