Community Festival This Saturday!

Attention Ivy City & Trinidad Residents: 

The National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) and the DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) would like to thank you for your involvement in the Ivy City & Trinidad Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Through your participation in three community meetings, six focus groups and a workforce skills survey that received nearly 700 responses, you have shown your commitment to the spirited, thriving community you call home. Help us celebrate this commitment through a day of volunteering, resource sharing,  food and entertainment.

The “Celebrate Ivy City & Trinidad” community festival will start with a volunteer event organized by DC Cares, the Trinidad Neighborhood Association and ANC Commissioner Tina Laskaris. The event will start at 10:00AM on the corner of Bladensburg Road and Levis Street and will provide participants with an opportunity to remove trash from Bladensburg Road and help improve a local storefront. Those interested in volunteering should contact Andrea Sledd of Greater DC Cares at (202) 777-4453. All necessary equipment will be provided on site and the first 25 volunteers will receive a free t-shirt.

The celebration will continue at the Trinidad Recreation Center, located at 1310 Childress Street, NE,  where food will be provided by Ivy City and Trinidad’s own Sugar: Upscale Soul Food and the Capitol City Diner. The event will feature live DJ entertainment. Representatives from local nonprofit housing developers, workforce training programs and NCRC’s small business and housing counselor teams will be on site to provide information related to their services. 

Festival details are included in the attached flyer. Please share this information with your neighbors. We hope to see you on Saturday!
