Summer 2018 Edition
Get ready for an action-packed summer as Washington, DC embraces its bustling waterfronts, energetic rooftops, thrilling festivals and family-friendly fun. We’re riding the momentum of sports in DC, fresh off the Washington Capitals’ Stanley Cup victory, the city’s first professional team championship win in fourteen years. In July, the nation’s capital welcomes visitors celebrating America’s favorite pastime during the MLB® All-Star Week™ (July 13-17), opens Audi Field for DC United on July 14 and hosts the 50th Citi Open tennis tournament.
DC’s cultural calendar also comes alive, including the National Building Museum’s Fun House (July 4-Sept. 3), the first-ever By The People arts festival (June 21-24) and must-see shows like Hamilton’s debut at the John F. Kennedy Center. Watch our new arts and culture video series, “The Arts District,” to explore DC’s arts scene from a local perspective.
