cp_2014_graphic_v3

For those who may not have heard about this yet, a group of community organizers in the Petworth community have come together to plan and execute a small neighborhood festival celebration in the heart of Petworth. The Celebrate Petworth Festival will highlight the creativity, diversity, culture, people, and quality of life of Petworth: the core components of what make Petworth a vibrant and wonderful place to live and do business. Celebrate Petworth will be anchored around 4 main themes: Art, Music, Food and Healthy Living, and Kids/Family and will be held Saturday, May 10th from Noon to 6 PM.

As part of the fundraising and organizing of the event, Celebrate Petworth has kicked off a CrowdRise Campaign (link here). Organizers estimate it will cost approximately $12,000 to cover DCRA and DDOT permitting fees, required security and insurance, staging and equipment, and to support the musicians and performers. They are asking the community to help them raise $5,000 while they attempt to secure the majority through corporate sponsorships.

The goal is for this inaugural festival to be the first of many to come. Your support will help make this kickoff a success and secure it as an annual celebration of the community. The following event sponsors have already been identified — Green Line Real Estate, Creativecouch Designs, Car2Go, Petworth Citizen, Fido and Kitty’s World, & Various Petworth Neighbors.

Those interested in attending can follow Celebrate Petworth on twitter @celebratePTW or like their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/celebratepetworth.  They also have a basic website up at www.celebratepetworth.org.
