H Street Festival

By Page Zakas

Are you looking for an exciting way to spend your Saturday? This Saturday, September 15th, marks the return of the H Street Festival. The neighborhood festival is filled with food, drinks, and performances. In addition to the usual street fare, one of the designers from DC Fashion Week will hold a fashion show as a preview for Fashion Week, which officially begins Monday, September 17.

The celebration begins noon at the Biergarten Haus with traditional German food and beverages as well as a German band. If German music is not your cup of tea, DJs Sam “The Man” Burns, Jon H, and Frank will all be spinning electronic music in the 1100 block. If you are planning on staying late into the evening, do not miss the Rock and Roll Hotel, which will offer three floors of dancing for free!

Of course eating is an important part of any street festival, and H Street Festival has a wide variety of choices. Whether you want to try restaurants that are opening soon such as Impala Cantina y Taqueria, or participate in an eating contest, H Street has the options. Popular hoagie shop, Taylor Gourmet, will host an eating contest. Contestants will have to see how many hoagies they can eat in 15 minutes!
