The Yards Park Boardwalk Block Party!

  • 301 Water Street Southeast Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

Summer is fleeting, but restaurants at The Yards are not letting it fade into fall without a party. In the spirit of summer, the grill is sparked, crisp wine + sun season cocktails will flow and friends gather for a waterfront block party on the boardwalk at the first annual Boardwalk Block Party.  On September 16th from Noon – 5:00pm, restaurants from The Yards, DC’s waterfront playground will gather in front of Morini Piccolo on the boardwalk for an afternoon of oyster shucking, ice cream scooping, summertime imbibing and waterfront revelry with all proceeds benefiting Project Sunshine.

Restaurants will present wine, cocktails and eats, and summer vibes will be in full swing as the wood plank boardwalk atop the Anacostia River plays host to live music from Three Man Soul Machine and a dunk tank where block party goers can dunk a chef (or themselves if they so feel like it) courtesy of The Yards Marina.

●      Osteria Morini

●      Whaley’s

●      Due South

●      Agua 301

●      District Winery
