I actually stuck around and checked out the variety of groups performing that day. No ,I am not pictured above with my hands in my pockets, although I was probably nearby. Great live music was on display from a very unique rock reggae group called Pure Light Seed, a fun traditional Irish group called O'Tasty, some Hip Hop flavor from The Fif and DC's own Flex Matthews. The fantastic people over at the Wonderland Ballroom had an opportunity to celebrate while soaking in the bands through an awesome sound system. It turns out that the 41 acre RFK stadium lots were hosting the annual Blocktoberfest on the same afternoon. Perhaps the promoters will fine tune the planning for next year, so more of DC can enjoy an event like this.

Thanks for commenting. I am one of the three people that started the non-profit to plan this and essentially everything you saw that day was the effort of six people over four months. A lot of the issues that were raised, such as no food or beverage vendors, were a result of DC Permit restrictions and the ability to put something together in such a short period of time. We basically chose the path of least resistance for the first year.

Furthermore, it was quite expensive and difficult to obtain buy-in for an innaugural event. All businesses were made aware of the event and were invited to participate on numerous occassions. I personally walked door-to-door to every business one day.

As far as advertising was concerned, there simply was not enough money in the budget. So, we instead needed to rely on community calendars and blogs. What you may not have noticed was that while people did not stay on the field, plenty of people came through, as was evident to us by our fundraising that day. Had we realized that the shirts sales would have been as successful as they were, we would have fronted the money for advertising. Also, while people did not stay they did flood the local restuarants, with sales up 150-300% for a normal Saturday.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed the music! It's sorta our favorite thing. In our minds we accomplished everything we set out to do and then some. And we were really happy to give Mayor Fenty a reason to come out and meet all of you.

We welcome suggestions and any type of support or donations of services. We have three times as long to plan next year, so the sky's the limit. www.columbiaheightsday.org

yeesh! Has the world gone INSANE?!?! Sounds like things could've gone better when the Hospitality Tent starts firebombing the attendees and running wild with mace, fixed bayonets, and harsh language.

Maybe the event was a more accurate reflection of the neighborhood than I thought...

Look, a few of the people setting up Columbia Heights day screamed at me in front of my wife and kids on Saturday. We refused to go after they yelled at us for no reason. The people who organized it treated us like jerks, so I'm ecstatic they failed!

Where I grew up, everybody and their brother left town on Columbus Day weekend so that might be a part of the problem.

2007-10-09T13:54:00.000-04:00

I agree with you concerning the lack of promotion. With the proper marketing and use of professinally designed and printed collateral, this event could have been a success regardless of the unusual heat.

I would be interested in collaborationg with you if you do decide to offer your graphic design services. The more ideas that are brought to the table, the more successful the promotional campaign.

2007-10-09T10:04:00.000-04:00

I also think promotion was an issue. I am acquainted with a few CH business owners (Mayorga and Carvel) and about a week or so ago asked them, "Hey are you guys participating in Columbia Heights Day?" and they looked at me like I had 2 heads. One suggested that what I really meant was Adams Morgan Day. They clearly had no clue it was happening.

2007-10-09T09:11:00.000-04:00

someone from the columbia heights day festival was sort of approaching crafty bastards vendors on the vendor gallery of the page by leaving comments to contact them...but they were approaching out of town craft folk!
and, like, two weeks before the festival!
c'mon folks...get it together

Good points, all -- Promotion is key to the success of these things. It's gotta be hugely expensive to put on a gig like that, so maybe they start smaller next year, and let it grow over time?

The lack of the "pet parade" was a serious blow. Every day, I see a great number of insane, groovy, hideous, weird, and genuinely beautiful and charming dogs in CH... It would've been a blast to see 'em all in one place.

Next year?

2007-10-09T08:51:00.000-04:00

I live in the area, and the only reason I knew about it was because back in August, an organizer had knocked on my door asking me to sign something because they were trying to get the street closed for CH day.

I took a walk by, and I was surprised at how sparse the festival was. I didn't even see vendors/people in tents setting up until round 11am ish.

We had a festival like this in the town where I grew up. Vendor booths, food, entertainment. All were required to sign contracts (I wonder if CH participants had to?) Vendors had to arrive no later than 8 am and had to be ready and open by 10am. Food was even earlier - they had a pancake breakfast, and burgers, etc, for lunch. And they advertised the heck out of it.. Local papers, etc.

I don't think I saw CH day in the Express or anything - only a flyer at Starbucks.

As you said,

The inaugural "Columbia Heights Day" didn't appear to be advertised much,

Indeed, I didn't even know there WAS a Columbia Heights Day. This is the first I'd heard of it.

It was too hot on Saturday for an outdoor festival. Maybe next year October will be crisp and cool, inviting.

I love bloody marys. Yum!! The vodka should feel honored to share the glass with all that delicious stuff. Yes!!
