17th Street Festival invites you to support us to celebrate the 9th
annual 17th Street Festival. To close the street, we need to raise a total of $60,000 to cover the costs of the festival this year. Most of the costs will go to city services, such as the Metropolitan Police Department and the Department of Public Works, as well as DDOT for street closure and DCRA for the event permit. The festival is paid primarily through grants, donations, vendor fees, and sponsorships. It is very expensive to close the street, and
we could not do it without you!
Don’t miss one of the best neighborhood festivals in all of DC -
the 17th Street Festival on Saturday, August 25th where friends and families will experience a day filled with live music, artist, vendors, and community along the 17th Street Corridor. Festival goers will see over 100 vendors, including artists and makers, and have a chance to connect with local nonprofit organizations and businesses. There will be special activities for children in
the Kids Zone throughout the day. Saturday, August 25th from 12:00-6:00 p.m. Free!
For making a donation, you get a wrist band for discounts
throughout the event. Some places offer a discounted drink, others a bargain appetizer, and another has happy hour all day.
We are still finalizing the list. Thank you for your support for the 17th Street Festival!
The 17th Street Festival celebrates the shops, restaurants, and services along 17th Street. By using artists and makers, we
are able to bring thousands of people for one day in the street to rediscover why 17th Street is an amazing place to live, work, shop, and dine.
