The festival is set to take place on 11th St. between Park Road and Kenyon St. NW this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Event organizers with the Columbia Heights Initiative are expecting around 8,000-10,000 people the day of the event.

“I couldn’t be more excited about Saturday,” said Brianne Dornbush, executive director with the Columbia Heights Initiative. “Our team has been working around the clock to ensure this is the best festival to date.”

This year’s festival is slated to have 13 food vendors, more than 100 artisan and businesses, two stages with live entertainment and a beer garden sponsored by DC Brau.

And here’s an added bonus for kids: the festival will include a family fun field at Harriet Tubman Elementary that will have clowns on stilts, balloon animals, moon bounces and other attractions.

Parents can also have their children undergo health and dental screenings as part of an effort to spread awareness about vaccinations.

“We hope residents from Columbia Height, around the District and visitors to our great city will come and join us to celebrate our neighborhood,” Dornbush said.
