Thanks to John for sending:

“Attempting to access the Arboretum I was redirected due to a truck that was too tall to make it through the railway overpass on Bladensburg Road and got smushed. I ended up being forced onto NY Ave/Rte 50, and then Kenilworth Ave/295 South. I worked at the Atlanta Olympics so when I exited at Benning Road this logo caught my eye. 26 years after the fact, people are still being directed to RFK for Olympic soccer qualifying matches.”

Also, check out this “old super 8 footage that my grandparents shot, and here we stumbled upon their footage of a Redskins game sitting on the field at the old RFK stadium back in the 1960s.” Read More


“Dear PoPville,

I live in Eckington and have been blasted all day with heavy base and electronic music from the Project GLOW festival over at RFK festival grounds, which is ~3.5mi away. Somehow didn’t hear it yesterday, and it goes on until at least 11pm tonight (Sunday) which feels kind of nuts to me. I can’t even imagine how loud it is for neighborhoods even closer. Read More


From a press release:

“Organizers of the National Cannabis Festival are pleased to announce the return of the largest ticketed cannabis event on the east coast to RFK Festival Grounds in Washington, DC on Saturday, August 28, 2021.

“Round five of the 2002 ALMS visits Washington D.C. at the RFK Stadium street circuit.”

Oh wow, for those who missed out on this – it was awesome! Well it was either awesome or awful depending on who you ask. If you lived nearby it was LOUD. Anyway if PoPville was publishing in 2002 the comments would’ve broken the site for sure. I happened to come across this in an unrelated search and it is awesome. Or awful depending on who you ask. Have a look for yourselves: Read More
