When: Today, June 30, and Saturday, July 7, at 4 p.m.
We would argue that every event is a teeny bit better when shopping is involved. Don't miss the Marketplace, which is open daily and features local, national, and international artists and crafters. Expect to see jewelry, textiles, food, and more.
When: Today through July 1, and July 4 through July 8, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
In honor of Chuck Brown Tribute Day next Saturday, the Citified section of the festival will honor the godfather of go-go with a day-long series of events. Be there for Go-Go Fitness, a Zumba-esque class where you can work out to the sounds of D.C.'s native genre.
When: Saturday, July 7, at 3:30 p.m.
