Anwar Saleem, Executive Director of H Street Main Street, and the entire H Street community invite you to join us on September 17, 2011 for HStreetFestival2011, 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 35,000 who loved HStreetFestival2010. 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 4 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 HStreetFestival2011’s 6 blocks of Urban Fun.
