Downtown D.C. buzzes with activity no matter the season. Springtime brings the National Cherry Blossom Festival®, which offers a variety of activities to celebrate the season's arrival. Fall is for Arts on Foot, Downtown's free visual and performing arts festival, returning in 2013. The winter holiday is always an especially bright season with festive lights, banners and store windows to warm your spirit. Our Downtown Holiday Market makes one-stop, unique gift shopping a neighborhood gathering place for all.
