H Street sees thousands flock to free festival

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Marina Ghabbour.

Thousands flocked to the H Street Festival Saturday to chow down on free food and experience the Northeast neighborhood between 8th and 14th streets.

The festival was framed by two stages presented by the Rock & Roll Hotel where local D.C. artists like Billy Woodward & The Senders, Alma Tropicalia, The Tribe, Lucky Dub – whose members hail from GW – and DJs Keenan and Metaphysical performed.

Sharon Cochran, an event volunteer, said that the festival was started to bring more business to H Street, which has been working toward gentrification for almost ten years.
