A new art event joins the active line-up of community programs centered on the Petworth Park on Saturday, June 9th from 4pm to 9pm (801 Taylor St NW). A brainchild of the Petworth Arts Collaborative (PAC), Petworth Arts Fest will feature various professional DC artists, live installations and performances to engage neighbors and our surrounding community through the arts. The event is co-sponsored by the Friends of Petworth Park and the Friends of Lincoln’s Cottage.
You can create beautiful art along side professional artists in a variety of activities from a large-scale woven installation along the fence, to a 20 foot nature-inspired mandala pattern on the basketball court.
The Arts Fest will be held on the basketball court, where you'll find:
- Visual artists
- Pride of Place poster contest
- Live musicians
- Live muralist
- Dance company
- Theater company
- Family-friendly activities and more
- 80’s dance party finale
Come out ready to experience and be inspired by live performances, a kids' open mic with Bloombars, live pottery throwing, live mural painting, a 10-foot tall Lincoln Top Hat activity with President Lincoln’s Cottage, and more!
