A Pop of Spring

The DowntownDC Business Improvement District’s (BID) Pop of Spring will transform the 800 block of F Street NW into an area ripe with activations to celebrate Washington, D.C.’s vernal awakening. Occurring at the height of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, Pop of Spring invites residents and visitors to DowntownDC for 10 days of seasonal food, fun, and performances. Guests can enjoy live entertainment inclusive of karaoke and cosplay, discovering and supporting local vendors, and relaxing in swinging table benches perfect for playing games, working outdoors, and savoring a bite to eat.


What began with a gift in 1912 at the Tidal Basin is now a four-week extravaganza spanning Washington, DC, and neighboring communities in Maryland and Virginia.
