This is a list of events and festivals, which you cannot miss when on a Washington DC tour this July.
Jazz in the Garden
On Fridays, sit back and dance to jazz music with sangria at the Sculpture Garden of the National Gallery of Art. An eclectic blend of jazz musicians from DC lends a soundtrack to an idyllic scene, which is set around the central fountain of the garden. You also get to have a menu of food items and drinks to make your garden visit worthwhile.
Billed as the biggest outdoor food market in the world, Smorgasburg DC is set up at the Tingey Plaza in the Navy Yard neighborhood on each Saturday through October 2019 at the least. Anticipate seeing over 30 food vendors coming from various backgrounds. There will be periodic pop-up shops right through the market’s run, besides a beer garden.
Capital Fringe Festival
In this edgy festival, you can watch performances that are out-there from local creative people, including film screenings, live music performances, impro dramas, and more. Events will take place along the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood in DC, including those inside local churches and at Arena Stage.
Washington Kastles Tennis
Washington Kastles start another season in July in a new venue atop Union Market. You will be able to catch this elite WTT (World Team Tennis) on top of one of the hippest destinations in the District. Washington Kastles regularly introduces new stars annually and this year is no different to this. You will see the American sensation Frances Tiafoe, Australia’s Nick Kyrgios, and the legendary Venus Ebony Starr Williams aka Venus Williams.
A number of neighborhoods in DC host film screenings which are best for spending one night under the sky, including NoMa, Adams Morgan, and Capitol Riverfront. Venues that are being involved in this include Union Market and Dumbarton House. If you wish to venture into Virginia or Maryland, then there are lots of options there too.
“The Evidence Room” Exhibition
This is an installation at DC’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden that uses architectural forensic proof to give a sublime tribute to the nightmares of the Shoah. With the information collected from correspondence, blueprints, eyewitness accounts, and photos, The Evidence Room has architectural reconstructions and plaster casts which explore the role architecture played in the greatest atrocity known to mankind.
