This past weekend the #aCreativeDC Instagram feed was F I L L E D with amazing imagery from the third annual Broccoli City Festival (see below/click for creds), and we were glad to be there to take it in ourselves. Held at the Gateway D.C. Pavilion (formerly/more commonly known as St. Elizabeth's), and hosted by Rock Creek Social Club, the ~ P O S I T I V E V I B E Z ~ (despite/in spite of the weather) were incredible.
I spent most of my time under the pavilion, wandering through live art curated by BL_NK WORLD (way on board with their "Celebrate the Uncelebrated" tagline), and checking out booths helmed by the DCCAH, GLOSSRAGS, Whole Foods, and various retail, vintage, and art/craft vendors (A Creative DC's Ayana Zaire was also on site, with her DISTRIKT DC zine on offer). The marketplace aspect was what made it truly feel local (it helped that the One Love Massive-sponsored side stage was located on the far end). re: MUSIC FESTIVAL, the style-watching was on point, with Coachella-inspired garb few and far between. In its place? Badu masks + backpacks; leather jackets, black hats + hoodies: pure D.C.
