Art All Night: Made in DC is Washington, DC’s free overnight arts festival, taking place in six DC Main Streets neighborhoods, bringing visual and performing arts, including painting, photography, sculpture, crafts, fashion, music, dance, theater, film, and poetry, to indoor and outdoor public and private spaces, including businesses.

In Congress Heights, CHACC is normally just 1 of about 10 venues open overnight on the MLK Avenue Corridor. 

The festival is presented by the Department of Small and Local Business Development in partnership with Destination Congress Heights, Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, H Street Main Street, North Capitol Street Main Street, Shaw Main Streets, and Tenleytown Main Streets with financial support from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities.

MLK DAY Youth Market Place 2018 was definitely a success. CHACC proudly hosted over 20 vendors under the age of 18 years old.

Our vendors showed up and showed out with their ready-to-sell products that consisted of everything from cookies to popcorn to original art to slime and more!

Each one of our mini-vendors had phenomenal brand presence as well as high vending spirits. No one one left empty handed and we're not just speaking of the customers. All vendors made great sales and several even sold out!

Thank you to all who came out to support our Kidpreneurs and to prove that age doesn't matter when it comes to being a BOSS!

We look forward to future Youth Marketplaces in the future!

Special Thank you to Lenzy Ruffin Photography for capturing such great moments throughout the day!
