From Washington City Paper
The year’s Down in the Reeds Festival has been canceled due to lack of funding. The announcement came via email and social media this morning, Friday, May 12, from the festival’s organizers, stating “due to circumstances out of our control we were denied two significant grants that have carried the festival for the past couple years and there is no current financial way that we can move forward with the 2023 festival.”
