Ebbitt Block Party is Washington D.C.’s premier street festival and cookout!!

This years musical lineup: National roots rocker JACKIE GREENE, regional favorites WILLIAM WALTER, SOL & FUNK ROOT, EMILIE BOGRAND, JUSTIN TRAWICK, CHRISTYLEZ BACON, and The Homestead Act.

It’s summer in the city and the sun’s out so it’s time to shut down G street and turn up the music. Join us as we push DC summertime into full swing! The 2nd Annual Ebbitt Block Party has quickly established itself as DC’s premiere street festival and tastiest cookout. We will be parking ourselves on the 1400 block of G street, paving the way for hours of non stop musical performances and sparking up the grills for signature Old Ebbitt Grill food and drink! Write the date down and sunscreen up, we can’t wait to see you there!

We are joined again this summer by our charitable partner, the DC Central Kitchen who will again be collecting canned or commercially packaged nuts and raisins, as well as can openers. Bring something to contribute and receive a free raffle ticket for each item!

With 3 stages, 6 bands, and 7 hours of music, the block is gonna rock! We’ll have 2 Street Stages as well as a Main stage. You’ll get a taste of Rock, Blues, Funk, Folk and more!!
