Opportuntiy or Crafters: Capitol Hill's Barracks Row Fest

My friend Stuart over at Barracks Row Festival says there are still spaces available for arts + crafts vendors at the upcoming Barracks Row Fest on Sept. 29th . Here's the info:

Barracks Row Main Street will be hosting its fifth annual street festival on Saturday, September 29.

Last year’s Barracks Row Fest attracted over 6,000 attendees with 80 vendors and musical acts on the stage all day. This year, we hope to increase attendance by partnering with the Capitol Hill Community to bring an Oktoberfest and Military Cook-off to Barracks Row. The Armed Forces Military Cook-off, modeled after the popular Iron Chef television competition, will showcase the culinary skills of the nation’s top military chefs.

This will also be the first year that Barracks Row will feature a beer garden. Popular features from last year’s festival, including a children’s area with a moon bounce and petting zoo, art vendors, and a performance by the Marine Corps’ Silent Drill Team, will also be present at this year’s festival.

We still need vendors. Whether you represent a non-profit group, or wish to sell food, arts, or crafts, we invite you to download the application available at We hope to make this the biggest festival on Barracks Row yet.
