The inaugural 2010 RiverFrontFest will take place on Saturday, October 9, 2010, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., adjacent to “The Yards Riverfront Park” near Nationals baseball stadium in Washington, DC. (Navy Yard Metro, New Jersey Ave. exit)

RiverFrontFest will feature live music, a trapeze demonstration, B-Boy Competion by NoKinsCollective, children’s activities, an Art Whino Battle of Artistic Creativity, arts and crafts vendors, beverages, food and fun.

Proceeds from the event will support some great local causes: Kids Set Sail, Living Classrooms and Earth Conservation Corps. This festival is here to build an awesome sense of community by bringing an annual event to the new, growing Capitol Riverfront Neighborhood. We look forward to seeing you at the event!

The festival will take place on Water Street SE between 3rd and 4th Streets SE, behind the Department of Transportation headquarters 2 blocks south of the Navy Yard Metro, New Jersey Ave. exit. Water Street DOES NOT come up on Google or Mapquest maps. It is a new park-side street just finished so check out our Website for directions.

We are seeking volunteers to help us put on a great show! Our aim is to provide a vibrant annual event while making meaningful contributions to our Benefactors. Your Help is very important to making this happen. Please visit our site and click the Volunteers tab to sign up. Volunteers receive free admission to the event, a Festival T-Shirt and food and beverage tickets
as thanks for helping out. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
