Mt. Vernon Square Open Community Day
On Saturday, October 15, from 10 am to 4 pm, get to know Mount Vernon Square and Downtown DC by spending the day with Events DC! Come, play and learn the history of Washington DC, meet your neighbors, eat, drink, and shop local. Mount Vernon Square is located at 7th and K Streets NW. It was included by Peter (Pierre) L'Enfant in the original city design as a gathering place, now at the crossroads of the local and federal city. The square has served Washingtonians as a market, a public library, a convention center, and is now home to the DC History Center—the only community-based nonprofit focused on the District's history.

Formed in 1999, Cultural Tourism DC was at the forefront of the cultural tourism movement. With a mission based on celebrating the neighborhoods and cultures that make Washington, DC special, CTDC has made a lasting impact through its signature programs including Passport DC, Around the World Embassy Tour, WalkingTown DC, and PorchFest, and through a series of DC Neighborhood Heritage Trails that tell the stories of the city, its residents, and the shared history. Events DC has acquired these programs and will continue to produce them as part of its Community Engagement department.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Cultural Tourism DC over the years – its funders, affiliate members, dedicated volunteers, elected officials, staff, and board. It's been a wonderful journey. Click here to learn more.
