Ever wonder what it’s like here in our warehouse after closing time? Come find out!
The first Friday of every month between May and September, stop by Community Forklift for lively entertainment, food, beer, and wine. Throughout the summer, we’ll have open mic nights and open studios, local artists, and musicians! Invite your friends and neighbors – it’s a great chance to meet up with folks you haven’t seen in a while.
Joe’s Movement Emporium will be here to entertain Forklift Fans of all ages with Latin dance and jump rope, brought to you by Jessica Quiroz and Casi York. Kids and adults can explore creative jump roping and the fun steps, hops and shakes of bachata, merengue and salsa. This is a free service by Joe’s, but donations are welcome.
We’ll also be joined by Indie Folk group The Iris Bell. Since 2013, The Iris Bell have crafted a distinctive style of folksy Americana with lush harmonies, a variety of instruments, and a generous helping of barrel-aged American whiskey. The band is a combination of veterans and newcomers to the DC music scene, melding a range of backgrounds, experiences, and influences into original songs that have been performed at farmers markets, festivals, and local clubs.
Enjoy $3.50 craft beer and wine from Town Center Market and eat the best Banh Mi sandwich on this side of the river from Pho Wheels.
PhoWheels offers a modern interpretation of traditional Vietnamese cuisine, where comforting favorite dishes blend seamlessly with bold new flavors that will entice your palate. Vietnamese cuisine like you’ve never experienced before! Not just a Pho Truck! Forealz!
That’s not all! We will have three artists from local Hyattsville displaying & selling their art: Diane Elliott, Sally Ann Rogers, and Adrienne Price. All three artists are members of the Hyattsville Community Arts Alliance. Bluegatorjewelry will have jewelry using glass beads, sea glass, found objects, charms and broken china pieces, Adrienne Price will have her whimsical and psychedelic prints out for sale, and Diane Elliott will be joining us for the first time with her colorful mosaics and stained glass!
