Attention Bernie bros and gals: U.S. Presidential Candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is set to hold a rally at the RFK Festival Grounds on Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m.
Although Hillary Clinton cinched the Democratic Party nomination on Tuesday evening (following an Associated Press report on Monday that she had secured the necessary delegate count), an Events DC release about Sanders’ rally says he will discuss “the issues that matter to him: making college-tuition free, getting big money out of politics, combating climate change, and much more” before the June 14 Democratic Primary. Events DC is the District’s sports and convention authority.
The rally is scheduled to run until 8:30 p.m. on the grounds’ Lot 3. It will be free and open to the public, but Events DC advises admission is first come, first served. The site is located at 2001 E Capitol St. SE and is accessible by Metro’s Orange, Blue and Silver lines at the Stadium/Armory station.
There is a skate park nearby.
