Washington DC Events and Tickets

Visiting the Nation’s Capital has its perks, not least of which is the abundance of festivals, street fairs, and cultural events.  Different events are held throughout the year, giving you a special reason to visit during any season.  I recommend planning your trip around one of D.C.’s less well-known festivals to avoid the crowds and truly get a sense of how this city lives and plays.
