Adams Morgan Partnership supports several other signature events year-round.
Bike to Work Day: Mid-May (date tbd)
The Adams Morgan Bike to Work Day pit stop is one of the most popular in DC. More than 500 people visited the pit stop for their t-shirt, free goodies, and tune-ups from City Bikes. Check back for more details and registration information as the date nears.
Taste of Adams Morgan: Late May or Early June
Taste of Adams Morgan is organized in partnership with Mary’s Center for Women & Children. Now in its 6th year, the event draws together dozens of local restaurants to provide samples to hungry attendees who have purchased “taste” tickets. Stroll, sip and sample through DC’s most vibrant neighborhood!
All proceeds support Mary’s Center, which provides health care services, family literacy and other social services to 50,000 people whose needs often go unmet by the public and private systems. The Center’s first location was founded in Adams Morgan in 1988, and now it serves residents from the entire region at its eight locations.
Adams Morgan Day: first Sunday in September
Organized by a group of neighborhood volunteers and supported by the Adams Morgan Partnership, Adams Morgan Day draws thousands of festival goers to the neighborhood on a Saturday in September.
Small Business Saturday: The Saturday after Thanksgiving
The Adams Morgan Partnership works with American Express and small businesses in the neighborhood to attract shoppers at the start of the holiday season.
- Concierge Tours: Taking local concierge staff through Adams Morgan restaurants and shops is a relatively new effort that has been met with great success. Working with the Washington Area Concierge Association, BID staff take hotel concierges through several restaurants on each tour.
- Staff worked with Airbnb to host an Adams Morgan walking tour for Airbnb hosts in the neighborhood, encouraging them to provide information to their guests. Sixteen hosts attended the tour on Nov. 10 and received promotional materials about the neighborhood.
- The BID also works with a variety of other private enterprises who currently offer or plan on offering tours of the neighborhood.
