H Street Festival

Please note: This event has already occurred.
The annual block party celebrating the eclectic, vaguely hipster culture of H Street NE is now one of the city's biggest festivals. A crush of revelers filled H Street during last year's festival to watch bands and sit in art cars, line up for tacos, beers and funnel cake, and sip on daytime cocktails at the neighborhood's many bars. As in previous years, expect eating contests, the kickoff of Oktoberfest at Biergarten Haus and nearly every popular business (and a few that haven't even opened) to take part.
