WELCOME TO D.C.
JULY 24, 2021
BLACK GREEK FEST WELCOMES YOU.
What's the best way to get to D.C.?
The festival weekend will be located throughout the Washington, D.C. area. We suggest that out-of-town visitors fly into Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to remain close to the city and host hotel.
I've arrived. How do I get around D.C.?
We encourage you to utilize ride-sharing applications such as Uber and Lyft to get to festival events and around D.C.
I heard the location to the festival changed. Where EXACTLY is the festival taking place?
This sustainable facility (accessible by D.C. Metro, Uber, Lyft, and car) provides an innovative and unique venue for District locals and visitors to gather. Part open air and part covered pavilion, Gateway DC features a vegetated green roof, built-in exhibitor booths, and a cafe!
Where should I eat?
With Black Greek Festival, we are always rooting for everybody Black--including our Black-owned restaurants in the area. We encourage our attendees to utilize the EatOkra application to find the best Black-owned dinners, brunches, food trucks and more in the area.
I'm interested in sightseeing while I'm in town. Where should I look?
The short answer: Washington, D.C. has amazing sights and historical buildings that it can be overwhelming to pack it one weekend. BGF encourages you to plan in advance for any sights you'd like to see, as the district continues to open and residents are eager to go outside.
Where is the best place to stay?
Black Greek Festival is proud to partner with the Hampton Inn & Suites Washington DC-Navy Yard to serve as the official host hotel for the weekend. The rates have been specially curated for our attendees and offer the best proximity to our weekend events and Washington, D.C. (it's across the street from The Brunch Olympics location)!
