We want you to enjoy the “new” H Street as part of an even larger crowd than the 50,000 who loved HStreetFestival2011. So, we’ve planned quite an all day party from noon to 7pm for young and old alike. In addition to all of the stuff that made last year’s festival great – like the live music on 5 stages, the artcars, the Baltimore Rock Opera Society, the fashion shows, the patio cafes and the street parades, we’ve added even more entertainment and events to HStreetFestival2012’s 6 blocks of Urban Fun.

“Let the rivers clap hands,
let the mountains sing joyously together!” — Psalm 98

Mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining has already destroyed over 500 of the world's oldest mountains and more than 2,000 miles of streams. We need to remember the Appalachian communities who are paying with their health for our use of coal-fired power.

Join Interfaith Power & Light, and with Appalachian community groups, environmental organizations, and clean water defenders to call on the Obama administration for an end to destructive mountaintop removal coal mining.

*Come with your congregational banners and T-shirts, or stop by during your lunch break, to join our whole-souled group! Look for the dove to find us in the crowd.
