From an email:
Columbia Heights Day is right around the corner on Saturday, August 27. But before we celebrate the fifth year (!) of what we like to think as one of the best community festivals in DC, we hope you can help us get ready for the big day. Last year more than 10,000 people stopped by the festival and 2011 will be better (and bigger) than before.
We still have a few spaces open for vendors (those who are a local business owner, part of a community group or an artist). If you’re interested in having space during the festival let us know at [email protected] Check our sponsorship form (PDF) for more information or sign-up online on our website.
We are also looking for more volunteers. Columbia Heights Day is an all-volunteer operation and we need a few dozen helping hands the day of the festival. Can you help us set-up, sell T-shirts or face paint in the Kids Zone? Contact Volunteer Coordinator Ania at [email protected] to help out.
Finally, we also have a 5-for-5 campaign in honor of our fifth anniversary. We are encouraging folks to donate $5 online at ColumbiaHeightsDay.org or in-person at the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace on Saturday, August 6.
