Holy moly I can’t believe this is the 12th one – while it’s always fun in the sun, if it rains I’m guessing this one could be one for the ages!!

We have some exciting new change to this years event – A Beer Tent on the street!!! We have finally secured an alcohol license for the day so we’ll have Kenyon blocked off. In addition we will have a few food trucks and the stage is going to be much bigger this year as well.

We are also going to have music/events starting at 11 am. Below is a rough overview of the day:
-Event kick off intro – 11 am
– Karaoke
-live music
-DC Central Kitchen
– Sundress competition -3:30/4pm

  • This is Awkward

    Is there a fee to get in, or is this mostly like a block party thing with food/drink for sale? I’ve never been (still newish here), but it sounds fun. Couldn’t find any additional info on WB’s website.

      Same as above, also, is this event baby/toddler-friendly?

      • Philippe Lecheval

        If you think your baby/toddler will be safe among a couple hundred very inebriated bros in sundresses, then yes. It gets pretty loud and crazy.

        • Anonoline

          It’s my sister’s baby who is a very chill baby but I don’t want to be responsible for traumatizing her. Sounds like Running of the Chihuahuas or Georgetown French Market will be a safer bet.

        The owners of Wonderland have always been very supportive of families, but of course they have only so much control over their drunken customers.

        Dear POPVille,

        Can I take my baby to the bar? How bout if the bar is having a block party where everyone dresses in dresses? Is it ok then?


        • Dan

          What if it’s known as a hook-up bar? Is it ok then? That’s sorta baby-related, right?

        • Does your baby have a DC driver’s license?

    • AJSE

      I don’t think it cost money to get in last year, but obviously cost $ to buy beer tokens. I felt the block party aspect was family friendly; the beer garden was cordoned off more than it sounds like it will be this year.

    • CHGal

      There’s no cover charge. It’s family friendly, but if last year was any indication, as they day gets later things get a little crazier.
