Events and Festivals, Things to Do in Washington, DC

Dear Journalists,

Welcome to your resource for all-things-spring in Washington, DC. Yes, the cherry blossoms are in bloom early (check #MyDCcool on Instagram for the latest), but the month-long festival continues and unites DC with free events in celebration. It also marks the start of the tourism season, with conventions filling the city and many other exciting events on the horizon including the DC Bike Ride, Passport DC and the DC Jazz Festival.

In this issue, you’ll find tons of information on outstanding new neighborhood restaurants (15 coming to The Wharf alone) and hotels, more development, trends and events. We also have the details on the just-announced Women’s Voices Theater Festival returning early next year and upcoming exhibits at the National Gallery of Art and soon-to-reopen Freer Gallery of Art.  

I look forward to working together on your coverage, and please feel free to contact a member of the team for any story needs.
