800 block of Upshur Street, NW
From a press release:
“Petworth residents love where they live, gathering for informal neighborhood socials, chatting with neighbors from porch to porch and patronizing local businesses and events that have become a part of the fabric of the community. Continuing this heritage, the 800 Block of Upshur Street NW will come alive again on Saturday, September 8th from 11am to 5pm with CELEBRATE PETWORTH, an annual celebration of community featuring music, food, vendors and more. In its fifth year, the festival also will introduce TASTE OF PETWORTH, where attendees can purchase tickets and exchange them for delectable dishes from a variety of Petworth-area restaurants.
Over the past several years, Petworth has become locally and nationally recognized for its vibrant food scene that appeals to a range of budgets and tastes. From choripan to tikka masala, festival-goers can purchase tickets for $2 each at the event and use them to sample bites from several local establishments (dishes will be priced from one to six tickets). TASTE OF PETWORTH will feature:
“Celebrate Petworth was conceived and created to bring residents together, and food is central to any community as a way to communicate and celebrate,” noted Tom Pipkin, Co-Founder of the Petworth Alliance. “We want to thank our participating local restaurants for recognizing this and joining us in this exciting new addition to the festival lineup!”
Guests who patronize TASTE OF PETWORTH
also will receive 15% off at any participating restaurant on a future visit when they present their menu from the festival (some restrictions apply). For more information and updates, please visit celebratepetworth.org/tasteofpetworth
