WASHINGTON, DC, September 2, 2022 — Visit the Adams Morgan Pedestrian Zone this Sunday, September 4, from Noon to 10pm for all-day fun in an open street with no cars! Attendees of all ages can enjoy free entertainment, including face painting and balloons for kids, cornhole, complimentary fitness classes, eclectic boutiques, Michelin-starred restaurants and cheap eats, plenty of outdoor dining and rooftop bars, beauty salons, and more. 18th Street NW between Kalorama and Columbia Roads NW will be closed to vehicular traffic on select Sundays for the remainder of the year (September 4 and October 23, 2022 – more dates to come). Pedestrians, pets, people on scooters, cartwheelers, stilt-walkers, runners, and bicyclists are all welcome to spread out and move safely and freely through the street. 

The Adams Morgan Pedestrian Zone is brought to you by the Adams Morgan Partnership BID. This initiative is generously sponsored by Aetna, a health care company that is working to build a healthier world and is contributing to all of the fun, healthy ways to move throughout the pedestrian zone. Aetna is committed to providing individuals, employers, health care professionals and producers with innovative benefits, products and services. This event was made possible by a Streets for People grant from the DC Office of Planning.
