Neighbor to Silver Spring and designated as one of 23 “Main Streets” awarded by the State of Maryland, Takoma Park offers a small-town spirit with urban sophistication. Visitors can listen to live jazz music, shop year-round at a farmers market, attend annual festivals, enjoy original works of art, and shop for unique clothing and gifts.
Satisfy your sweet tooth with a twist on your favorite dessert at Capital City Confectionery, and sample coffee, cocktails, and other concoctions at the Takoma Beverage Company. Locally owned restaurants including The Republic and Trattoria da Lina exemplify the refined atmosphere filling this comfortable neighborhood, and annual events like the Takoma Trukgarten bring local food and brews to the community.
Annual community events invite locals and visitors alike to delve into the Takoma community. Plan your visit around the Takoma Park Street Festival, where local artists offer paintings, jewelry, pottery, and more, or get comfortable with Pajamarama, Takoma’s annual shop in your pajamas event.
Wander the main streets of Takoma Park and take in the mixture of small town spirit and urban sophistication. Weekend farmers markets and festivals, the TPSS Co-Op grocery store, and pop-up shops invite visitors to live like locals.
The history of Takoma Park’s ever-growing community is eclectic, eye opening, and a great way to get to know Montgomery County.
