From noon to 6 p.m. August 24, the 10th annual 17th Street Festival will take place in the heart of historic Dupont Circle. The event is free and will feature around 100 vendors who represent a variety of crafts, local businesses, and civic organizations. Music, dance, and a kids zone with activities will also be part of the festival, which runs from P to R streets NW.

Parking will be restricted on that stretch of 17th Street NW from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., says the Metropolitan Police Department. Vehicles in violation of the emergency restrictions will be towed, and drivers in the area should expect traffic delays. Here is the schedule of activities.

The 17th Street Festival isn’t the only D.C. festival coming up soon. In September, the Adams Morgan Day celebration will take over 18th Street NW, and in October, the District will hold its inaugural open streets event on an approximately 3-mile stretch of Georgia Avenue NW.
