Thanks to the work and support of Events DC, we will now be hosting the festival IN THE DISTRICT! The signature event, the Black Greek Festival, will now be at the Gateway DC, the premier state-of-the-art venue in Southeast, D.C.
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!
