The inaugural Kennedy Street Sidewalk Festival was a smashing success. Take a look.

What if this were every Saturday?

 

We’re still recovering from a festival that blew us away, and we’ll add more details to this page as we can. For now, here’s what was here.

“This festival hopes to bring residents of the many neighborhoods surrounding Kennedy Street NW together for a few hours of fun and exploring our street. We welcome the young & the old, those new to the neighborhood & those here for decades, and everyone in between.”

The Kennedy Street Sidewalk Festival was held on June 28th, from 10am-2pm between 3rd Street NW and Georgia Avenue NW.   It was a chance to join neighbors and friends to enjoy local businesses, entertainment and special guests along the Kennedy Street corridor.

If you are a resident…

  • …interested in checking out the festival, then come on out to Kennedy Street starting at 10am on June 28th.  We’ll have volunteers stationed at the intersections at 3rd, 5th and Georgia ready to answer questions, but this day is all about walking along Kennedy and meeting neighbors – so we encourage you to get out there and walk and explore for yourself!
  • …interested in volunteering to help out the day of the festival for part of the time, please email us at Contact@KennedyStreetNW.org and let us know.  We’ll find a way that you can contribute to the efforts of the day!
  • …interested in donating to support the day, please check out our Indiegogo campaign at http://igg.me/at/KennedyFestival – our campaign there has much more detail on what we’re raising money for, why we’re working through private citizen donations, etc.  No amount is too small, so even if you only have $5 or $10 to spare, we appreciate your support in starting this tradition to celebrate Kennedy Street.

If you are an existing local business or organization on Kennedy Street and you haven’t already heard from us but are interested in being involved in the festival, please email us at Contact@KennedyStreetNW.org and we’ll get back to you right away!
