“Bring in the May” with Washington Revels during their fun and festive celebration of Spring at the All Hallows Guild Flower Mart — a popular two-day festival held on the grounds of Washington National Cathedral since 1939.

The final day of the Flower Mart culminates in Washington Revels’ annual outdoor May Revels performance marking the “greening of the year.” The merriment kicks off with a boisterous procession as we parade in to the notes of our “Noisy Band.” Enjoy traditional dances performed by our “Tween Chorus,” delightful singing games brought to life by Revels Children, and a Spring mummers play filled with butterflies, bees, faeries, slapstick comedy and bad puns galore. Sing along on timeless Spring songs like “Wild Mountain Thyme” and everyone’s favorite musical-memory challenge, “Rattlin’ Bog”! Finally, be sure your children are watching closely during our colorful (and intricate) Maypole dance — after the Revelers finish, it’s the kids’ turn to get in on the fun!
