One Night With Janis Joplin adds some actual Fourth of July fireworks to the musical ones produced on stage, with a post-show barbeque buffet on the Arena Stage terrace -- a prime viewing spot for the famed pyrotechnics launched on the National Mall. First up is the show, a part-concert, part-theatrical event that captures Janis Joplin's life and legacy in all its live intensity. Mary Bridget Davies stars as the rock legend in a performance that has audiences dancing in the aisles and critics raving. Featuring powerful musical numbers including "Piece of My Heart, "Summertime" and "Mercedes Benz," as well as one song Joplin never formally recorded, One Night boasts a full band and a cast including Sabrina Elayne Carten, who plays Bessie Smith, Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone. After the performance, you'll move outside the theater for food and drinks, along with the fireworks viewing. Please see the full event description for the buffet menu. Learn More

Me and my friends had so much fun. All the exhibitors were super friendly, chatty and informative. The coffees and teas were delicious. Snacks were very limited and you had to pay for most, but you'll be so full of caffeine, I'm not even sure I'd recommend you eat beforehand...afterwards is always an option if you're hungry.

I took my brother and we had a great time! When we first arrived we were unsure of what to do or where to go, so we just jumped in. After that it was a party! We learned so much and it's definetly something I want to take my friends to. Plus, we got there early enough and got the goodie bags! Which was ideal because we purchased ALOT. Tons of fun and the price was perfect.

It was fun but quickly became crowded with long lines for some coffee tastings. Not as many giveaways as last year but fun nonethesame. Enjoyed samplings teas, coffees and other products and speaking to the people about their products.

lots of great coffee and teas samples but not well organized. There were a couple of demos going on but no signs indicating where they were and no one around to direct people...at least I didn't see any that stood out. Was hoping to see more Caribbean coffee businesses
