When we make people-dominated spaces, and not vehicle-dominated streetscapes, the fun can start. Our community is rich in a diversity of local businesses; a wide variety of community organizations; dedicated elected representatives that show up to show their support; and a slew of dedicated residents that are working to #FixGeorgiaAve.
We hope everyone enjoyed the 2019 Montgomery Hills Street Fest and will come back to celebrate with us in 2020. Feel free to leave us comments below on what you liked and what other ideas you have to make the Fest even better for next year.

The 2019 Montgomery Hills Street Fest is in the books. We were so thrilled to see the hundreds of residents that came to spend the day with us. It was like a gigantic dress rehearsal for when we can finally walk and bike across and along Georgia Ave.
HUGE thanks to all of our sponsors! We could not have done the Fest without you and your generous donations. We super-sized the fun this year and there are so many businesses, organizations, and individuals to thank – please say thanks to our sponsors when you are out and about.
And of course we would be remiss not to shout out to the dozens of volunteers that made this event possible, safe, and so much fun. Thank you to every one who gave their time, efforts, and cake!
The Fest Planning Team met many a Sunday at 8 am to plan the event – and even with all the work wanted to meet last night to talk about #StreetFest2020.
Finally, the Fest was an opportunity to advocate for to fund the Georgia Ave improvements and so many elected officials attended the Fest to demonstrate their continued support. It was a busy weekend in the County, and we appreciate you make the time for us!
Stay tuned for Fest photos – we will share them later this week.
We are less than 24 hours away to the second annual Montgomery Hills Street Fest. As we come together to celebrate our community, we have the power to make change and fix Georgia Ave. When you see our elected officials, please ask them to:
- Call / write the Governor, Maryland DOT Secretary Rahn, and SHA Administrator Slater to fund the MD 97 Alternative 5B Georgia Ave improvements. (Secretary Pete Rahn 410-865-1000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Ask County representatives to support Georgia Ave in Montgomery Hills as the #1 Transportation Priority and to commit to $10 m in County funding for construction.
- Tell the County Council to approve the Forest Glen / Montgomery Hills Sector Plan. (County Council 240- 777-7900 or email County.Council@MontgomeryCountyMD.gov)
We will have stamped, addressed postcards on hand to sign at the Street Fest. Come see us at the Friends of Forest Glen and Montgomery Hills table.
