Summer is almost here, and we will be hosting another pop-up shopping event to showcase all the Pride we have for Dupont Circle on Saturday, June 11th from 12:00-5:00 p.m.  More than 40 vendors will outside on the sidewalks along Connecticut Avenue to draw people to neighborhood for you to discover all the great retailers and restaurants around greater Dupont Circle.

More than 2000 shoppers came from throughout the region in April to take advantage of this unique shopping opportunity. While in Dupont Circle, shoppers visited the many pop-up vendors, local retailers, art galleries, and dinned in one of the many restaurants with outdoor café seating. 

The pop-up shopping event will have more than 40 vendors from around the region for pedestrians to discover paintings, jewelry, pottery, candles, soaps, and other maker goods.  Pop-ups will be in front of retail stores so you can walk around and then take a break in Dupont Circle park or at a streatery to recharge. 

Volunteers will be at the Dupont Circle Metro – North exit on Q Street – passing out maps and giving directions to pop-up shops and retailers.

The pop-up is organized by Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets and sponsored by the Department of Local & Small Business Development. The event is free and open to the public.  Rain or shine.  To learn more, visit
