The Pedestrian Zone
Increase the walkability of your neighborhood!
You asked, and we listened! We are excited to announce that the long-awaited return of the 18th Street Pedestrian Zone will occur on multiple Sundays throughout the remainder of the year. The pedestrian zone will be located along 18th Street NW between Kalorama and Columbia Roads NW on the following dates:
– Sunday, August 21 from 12pm-10pm
– Sunday, September 4 from 12pm-10pm
– Sunday, October 23 from 12pm-10pm
The objective of the pedestrian zone is to be a tool for the economic recovery of all the businesses in Adams Morgan. Closing the street to vehicular traffic allows for more pedestrians, bicyclists, and people on scooters to have additional safe space to walk to their favorite cafe, shop for a unique gift, bike to dinner with friends, scooter to a hair or nail appointment or just wander through the tree-lined streets of Adams Morgan and enjoy the architecture.
Pedestrian zone visitors can expect to see pop-up entertainment and fun programming throughout the day for people of all
ages. All are welcome to attend this safe, family-friendly community initiative.
