A group of community organizers have come together in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, D.C. to plan and execute a small festival celebration in the heart of the neighborhood. The Celebrate Petworth Festival will celebrate creativity, diversity, culture, people, and quality of life: the core components of what make Petworth a vibrant and wonderful place to live. Celebrate Petworth will be anchored around 4 main themes: Art, Music, Food and Healthy Living, and Kids/Family. The focus of the event is as described above, thus it will not be a large vending and sales opportunity. Celebrate Petworth will bring residents of Petworth together, not just for the day of the event, but through the creation of new opportunities for collaboration, partnership and engagement amongst residents, businesses, and non-profit organizations. The event is planned for Saturday, May 10, from 12 PM until 6 PM on the 800 block of Upshur St. Celebrate Petworth has received an ANC4C Letter of Support and permitting has been approved by the Mayor’s Special Event Task Force.
