About the Festival


Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets presents its 10th Annual 17th Street Festival, a free community event celebrating the shops, restaurants, and services of 17th Street. The 17th Street Festival will take place on Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. in the 1500-1600 blocks of 17th Street, NW.  The festival includes a wide variety of street vendors, including artists, makers, entrepreneurs, nonprofits, kids’ activities and entertainment – rain or shine.  Free!


The festival will include more than 60 artists and makers selling everything from oil paintings to pottery, jewelry to cigars, and every creative item in between. Other vendors include area nonprofit organizations, local entrepreneurs, and the Kids Zone will have an inflatable slide,


Unique to the 17th Street Festival will be an all day “traveling” entertainment on the street.


The 17th Street Festival was started in 2009 by Lee Granados, a long-time Dupont resident.  Today it is organized by Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, with major support from the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development.  Thank you!
