2013 H Street Festival a Huge Success
On Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, an estimated crowd of 100,000 people attended the 2013 H Street Festival, making it the most highly attended and successful year in the event’s history.
Organized by H Street Main Street, the festival showcased over 50 artists and 80 performances on 10 stages accompanied by an array of local, regional and international cuisine, shopping, arts exhibits, educational events, seminars and conversations with local entrepreneurs, artists and community organizations spanning 10 blocks of H Street NE.
The annual event is one of the most popular festivals in the Washington, DC area. This year's celebration attracted tens of thousands of foodies, art aficionados, wine and beer connoisseurs and music lovers to one of the city’s fastest-growing and most exciting areas.
“This year, the H Street NE Corridor won a Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA), so we knew we needed to build off of that success to make this year’s festival something really special,” said Anwar Saleem, Executive Director of H Street Main Street. “I can’t thank all of our sponsors, partners, volunteers and everyone else who made this event possible enough. When this neighborhood comes together and we put our hearts and minds towards doing something, we can accomplish anything. The sky really is the limit for H Street.”
