Fall is here so are street festivals! The 4th annual 17th Street Festival, a community-building event celebrating the local shops, schools, restaurants, clubs, parks, arts and folks of the 17th street corridor, invited you to its signature Arts Show at the Festival. The Festival runs from 12:00-6:00 p.m. on September 14, 2013.
“We’re back again for our fourth amazing year!,” said Festival Co-Chair Stephen Rutgers. “For yet another year we expect a great crowd for the artists and vendors at this year’s festival.” The Festival’s Arts Show Chair, Celina Gerbic, is thrilled with the diverse artists participating in the show this year. “We’re excited to have so many different artists participating this year. Art collectors will want to take notice of everything from pottery to painting, photography, mixed media, jewelry and more. It’s going to be a great day for art!”
The Arts Show is sponsored by the Dupont Circle Citizens Association (DCCA).
