Those looking to have a \”hoppy\” time this weekend will find no shortage of options from which to choose. After all, D.C.-area Oktoberfest celebrations are in full swing.
For many Washingtonians, this weekend is the first bit of reprieve after a week back from summer vacation, a week of back-to-school rush and a week of grueling traffic. Make the most of the weekend with these events.
The 50th anniversary of the March on Washington takes place on Aug. 28, but individuals, organizations and venues throughout the D.C. area are honoring the occasion all weekend long — from serious and reflective gatherings, to more festive and family-focused affairs. Many of the events are free and open to the public. Here are our top picks for the weekend.
Looking for something to do those warm summer evenings? Forget the movie theater and find a free outdoor movie screening the whole family will love.
DJs and bartenders will soon mix it up at the 9:30 Club. But this time, it\’s not just for the venue\’s regular concert go-ers; it\’s to raise money for D.C. Central Kitchen.
During the summer months, the D.C. area will play host to a variety of free concerts, highlighting all different genres.
Nothing welcomes the warm weather season like an outdoor festival. Whether it\’s arts-focused, a county fair or a parade, open air celebrations offer something for everyone, young and old.
