Petworth “Stop the Violence” Youth Basketball Clinic

Pre-Festival — 9am-11am

This is going to be pretty awesome. We've partnered with DC Parks & Recreation and their Roving Leaders for a co-ed clinic for 8-14 year olds with Roosevelt High School students as junior coaches at Petworth Recreation Center basketball court (801 Taylor St NW). No experience or equipment necessary. Free t-shirts for the first 100 boys and girls!

More details coming soon!


Music, Food, Vendors and More...

Celebrate Petworth is known for great music! This year we'll have a ton of bands playing the main stage on Upshur Street. 

Plus, we'll have dozens of vendors set up under tents, including Taste of Petworth, where you can try food from restaurants located in and around Petworth.
