If you’re sticking around D.C. for the long weekend, please note our list of the 20 best events around town, including a festival for theater buffs, a crab derby in Annapolis and a celebration of the King of Pop.

• The Kennedy Center hosts the Page-to-Stage Festival, where you can watch plays built from the ground up as more than 40 local companies participate in readings and open rehearsals of new works.

• At the Annapolis Maritime Museum, some of the region’s favored local crustaceans will be put to the test in a series of crab races as part of the first annual Crab Derby. Kids and parents alike can also enjoy a crab shell painting contest, live music, a magic show, a crab-picking contest and human crab crawl races.

• We’re running out of long, warm summer nights, so don’t miss out on Monday when the National Symphony Orchestra performs its annual Labor Day concert on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
