Cinco de Sundress is going to be epic!
“Mesdames et messieurs, boys and girls, the Wonderland Ballroom is very proud to announce that it will be holding its FIFTEENTH Sundress Festival on the fifth of May this year.
Sundress Fest, DC’s best beer-infused block party, is a celebration of summer that takes place at the Wonderland Ballroom every first Sunday of May with proceeds benefiting DC Central Kitchen.”
Literally all the stops – and there were honestly very few stops to begin with – have been pulled for Sundress’s quinceañera. Last year we ordered two swimming pools’ worth of beer, and this year we have four. DC Brau is coming out in force to serve them to you. Last year we got half a day of sun; this year we’ve already been assured by our only Wiccan regular that we’ll have beautiful weather. We have three bands. We have the fantastic Maddy Brannon and Kate Flaherty emceeing affairs from the stage, and we have the mellifluous musical stylings of DJ Keenan Orr until the streetlights come on.”
