By The People Festival

The Parks was selected as one of five main festival hubs (alongside National Cathedral, Smithsonian Arts & Industries, Union Market and THEARC West) for the inaugural By The People Festival presented by Halcyon, a local nonprofit arts and business incubator. By the People will feature captivating visual art installations in North, South, East and West D.C. highlighting established artists working with emerging local artists as well as responsive community outreach and engagement activities.

The festival hubs will be open each day from 10am-6pm, except for special evening hours at the Smithsonian Arts & Industries Building, open Saturday until midnight!
