“It’s been such an honor to call D.C. home over the years. Without the city’s support, it would have been difficult to sustain the kind of growth we’ve experienced year after year. Although the festival’s address is changing, our commitment to the community that has played an integral part in helping Broccoli City become what it is today remains unchanged. We’re excited to be in a position to extend our reach and still remain deeply rooted in the community through our year-round Power of One program, Broccoli Bar which we recently opened in Shaw, the 5k + Fitness Festival in Anacostia, and the annual Broccoli City Conference in Northwest,” said Marcus Allen, co-founder of Broccoli City Festival. “The change of venue will allow us to evolve as an organization, create a more enjoyable experience for attendees, remain accessible to consumers and still feature some of D.C.’s top food and marketplace vendors.”
