17th Street Festival will be a free community event that will celebrate the newly renovated 17th Street Corridor from Riggs Place to P Street. This event will include musical performances throughout the afternoon, artist vendors, a pet zone, a kids zone, auction tent, and exposure for non-profit groups and appearances by city officials to celebrate the unveiling of the new street-scape.
Additionally, individual artists and musicians will be invited to share their talents on stage and in booths along the 17th corridor. Dupont’s only DC Public School (Ross Elementary) will also open its doors to families and have activities for families in the area who are looking to maintain residency in Dupont.
* All proceeds and donations from this event will help to further revitalize the beauty of the street-scape, including flowers in tree boxes and light post banners highlighting local groups and organizations. Additional funds will go towards Ross Elementary and future events on 17th Street. Donations are considered tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
