H Street Festival
Anwar Saleem, Executive Director of H Street Main Street, and the entire H Street community invite you to join us on September 15, 2012 for HStreetFestival2012, DC’s best neighborhood Festival. H Street has so much to celebrate this year – the completion of the streetscape project, the opening of many new businesses along the corridor, and the survival of the businesses that have been part of our community for years.
We want you to enjoy the “new” H Street as part of an even larger crowd than the 50,000 who loved HStreetFestival2011. So, we’ve planned quite an all day party from noon to 7pm for young and old alike. In addition to all of the stuff that made last year’s festival great – like the live music on 5 stages, the artcars, the Baltimore Rock Opera Society, the fashion shows, the patio cafes and the street parades, we’ve added even more entertainment and events to HStreetFestival2012’s 6 blocks of Urban Fun.
Join us on H Street on September 15th to celebrate One Street – One City!
