Managed by Living Classrooms, Kingman Island in Washington, D.C. was transformed into a weekend music festival location for a week in mid-April.
The 5th Annual Tommy Wells Kingman Island Bluegrass and Folk Festival drew approximately 150 volunteers Saturday April 19, secured through REI’s stewardship program, as part of an Earth Day clean-up event.
Seven days later approximately 15,000 people embarked upon the location to enjoy incredible music, outdoor activities, great food and a wide variety of beverages at the Kingman Island Bluegrass and Folk Festival.
