The 17th Street Festival has been postponed until 2021. It was to take place on Saturday, August 29, 2020 from 12:00-6:00 p.m. in the 1500-1600 blocks of 17th Street, NW. Booth spaces are 10’x10’ and are immediately adjacent to other vendors. All vendor set-up and displays must be contained within the 10′ X 10′ booth space.
The festival sells out in advance, so apply right away. The majority of vendor spaces will be reserved for artists and makers. All vendors will undergo a review process to ensure a broad range artists and makers, as well as other vendors. Selections will be made on a rolling basis, and all vendors will be notified of their selection status within a few days. Priority will be given to artists residing in proximity to Dupont Circle. The Festival reserves the right to deny any application for vending that does not fit in with the vision of the festival, is oversubscribed, or would compete with existing businesses along the 17th Street business corridor or festival sponsors. And, we do not allow prepared food vendors that would compete with the restaurants on 17th Street.
We encourage vendors to bring their own EZ Up tents or rent one. Tents will be permitted and inspected by DCRA, so EZ Up tents only. Constructed tents, sheds, and other structures are not allowed. Please click on the link below to fill out the vendor application.
