Time to Celebrate

The Friends of RIA (FoRIA), along with the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the DC Dept of Housing and Community Development, will be hosting a FALL FEST later this September. The group would like to make the Fest to be an annual event that brings residents in the area to Rhode Island Ave NE and interact, meet, and spend time getting to know their neighbors and area businesses. In addition, the Fall Fest has the potential to show other small business owners who are considering a move to RIA that residents will come if they build their business here (and believe me for now…there are several small business owners considering a move… more on that later).  Many local businesses are already signing on to participate including DC Brau, Rita’s, and Art Enables.

See the flyer below regarding the event, but here are the basics:

WHAT: Fall Fest, A Day to Celebrate the Avenue

WHEN: Saturday, September 22nd, 2012, from Noon – 4 PM

WHERE: Rhode Island Avenue NE, between South Dakota Avenue NE and 20th St NE
