Community Event Calendar

Time to pull out your favorite party gear: 202Creates Month is finally here!

202Creates Month is a celebration of all things creative in the district. We spend the entire month of September highlighting the artists, makers, and entrepreneurs who fuel our city’s creative economy.

The 202Creates Kickoff is the premiere event for 202Creates Month and featured live performances by Pedro Night, DJ Biggs, and Black Alley, art activations by Creative Junk Food, and a dance activation by local dancers! Similarly, our Closing Celebration at the Anacostia Busboys & Poets will be host to a variety of local artists. We encourage you to check this page often so you stay fresh about upcoming creative events and activities!
