Struggling through the longest week ever? Not to worry — it's almost over, and this weekend promises to be epic. Not only is the first-ever Supernova festival taking place in Rosslyn, but we've also got Capitol Pride festivities and the Source Festival to add to the to-do list. For the former, Saturday's Pride Parade along 14th Street NW is one of the biggest draws, and this year's event features Lynda Carter — that's right, Wonder Woman — as Grand Marshall. On Sunday, catch performances by Emeli Sandé, Icona Pop, and Cher Lloyd.
Source Festival is your chance to experience tons of new theater work in the span of just a few weeks. And since the District has the second-highest number of theater seats in the country, you can rest assured that there's a jam-packed schedule of events. Can't handle too much avant-garde theater? Catch one of the many 10-minute plays. Ready to dive in headfirst? Choose among three full-length plays. Bonus: On Friday, June 28, there's a wild talent show highlighting performers in the festival's productions. The bottom line? There's no excuse for another boring weekend.
