House Expo at Eastern Market

Community Forklift at House Expo 2021.

On Saturday, October 29, from 9 a.m.–3 p.m., the Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS) will hold a free House Expo at the Eastern Market North Hall.

DOEE distributed reusable tote bags at last year’s Expo.


Everyone wants to properly maintain their homes and many Capitol Hill neighbors are actively planning home enhancement projects – or hoping to do so in the near future. Finding qualified experts to do this work can present a challenge. Often the best contractor is a local contractor, and you can meet them at the House Expo. You’ll also find experts in related fields, including real estate, finance, insurance, and property management – plus representatives of city agencies and local non-profits. 


Attendees can get their questions answered by experienced professionals.

Service providers are continuing to sign up, but there are commitments already from general contractors, painters, architects, personal organizers, and hardware and garden goods suppliers. DC Fire & EMS, and other District agencies, will be there to help you be safe in your home. The Department of Energy and Environment will present information on government programs promoting urban sustainability, answering all your questions on solar, water, and recycling. And perennial favorite, Community Forklift, will show off cool examples of the recycled and reclaimed building materials offered by this essential, eco-friendly non-profit.
