Celebrate Eastern Market at Funky Friday

Silent Disco, Beer Tasting, Line Dancing July 28

The silent disco on C Street SE, 2019.

Get together and celebrate Eastern Market’s 150th Anniversary and your neighborhood! It’s Funky Friday tonight near Eastern Market.

Kick your weekend off with a neighborhood beer tasting. Atlas Brew Works has crafted a limited-edition Eastern Market brew in honor of the nation’s oldest continually operating public food market. And you can taste it at these local retailers between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.:.

This is a good chance to complete your East City Books Where’s Waldo Passport –get a stamp at the bolded businesses when you stop in!  Pick up a “Find Waldo in Capitol Hill!” stamp card from East City Bookshop or any of the participating businesses, or download and print a copy here to get started. There’s prizes and a grand celebration July 29!

–and it’s free!

But, wait! There’s more. DC Rawhides hosts community line dancing and two-stepping at Eastern Market’s North Hall from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. And then, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., head outside and electric slide with the Silent Disco on C Street SE, where you can purchase the Eastern Market 150th Anniversary beer.
