Art All Night: Made in DC is Washington, DC’s free overnight arts festival, starting at 7:00 PM on Saturday, September 24, 2016 and running until 3:00 AM the following morning. The festival will take place in seven DC Main Streets neighborhoods, bringing visual and performing arts, including painting, photography, sculpture, crafts, fashion, music, dance, theater, film, and poetry, to indoor and outdoor public and private spaces, including businesses.

Visit Shaw, Dupont, Congress Heights, H Street, North Capitol, Tenleytown and Van Ness to explore the DC-made art of all kinds.

This year the festival will feature District of Columbia artists and collectives only, in celebration of the Made in DC initiative. The only exceptions will be selected international artists, by special invitation.

A ‘pre-party’ sponsored by JBG will begin at 4:00 PM on the 1900-2100 blocks of 8th Street, NW in Shaw, with over 25 aerialists, jugglers, gymnasts, and other performers from the Nuit Cirque troupe, in addition to art installations and music in businesses along those blocks.

The festival is presented by the Department of Small and Local Business Development in partnership with Destination Congress Heights, Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, H Street Main Street, North Capitol Street Main Street, Shaw Main Streets, Tenleytown Main Street and Van Ness Main Streets, with financial support from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities.
