The Promotion Committee markets the commercial areas of Dupont Circle as a shopping and dining destination. Promoting the unique characteristics to residents, visitors, and office workers, the Promotion Committee brands Dupont Circle through marketing campaigns, retail events, special events, and image events.

Merchants around Dupont Circle will host 50 makers on the sidewalk around greater Dupont Circle, about every three months.


In the spring, we hold our Spring Fling at the Washington Hilton, which includes a full dinner, dancing, and silent auction.  Each year, we have 100 people for this community party - the best bargain in town! 


In late Spring, Taste of Dupont is organized to market the restaurants of Dupont to kick off the cafe season.  This progressive dinner gets a large response every year, and the event continues to sell out. 


And, the 17th Street Festival is held at the end of August.  The festival has 130 vendors and attracts thousands of people!  We moved the kid's area to the festival site.  And we use mobile musicians without amplification – to rave reviews.  Thanks to all our sponsors who made the 17th Street Festival a huge success!    Thank you.
