Crowds braved the wet weather and flocked to the annual 17th Street Festival this Saturday. And although some left with soaked shirts and soggy socks, it’s safe to assume all had a good time.
From Drag City Divas to dozens of vendors, here’s what went down at this year’s 17th Street Festival.

On Tuesday, August 21, Tina Turner, Cher, Patti LaBelle, Beyonce, Diana Ross, Erykah Badu and Whitney Houston will grace the stage of the Howard Theatre — or at least their impersonators will.
That’s right, the world’s most famous divas will be replicated by some of DC’s top “illusionists” during the show, “Salute to the Divas.” DC’s own Shi-Queeta-Lee will direct and act in the first female impersonation show at the Howard since the 1960’s.
You might just swear they are the real thing!
