Brookland Cultural & Heritage Day Volunteer Meeting Monday – We Need You!

Earlier this month, we announced  a new neighborhood organization, the Brookland Cultural and Heritage Alliance (BCHA). The BCHA seeks  to establish a new annual Brookland community festival, the “Brookland Cultural & Heritage Day”, this coming April.  The emphasis of the festival will be on the history of Brookland and to celebrate local crafts, cultural organizations, and businesses. Pulling this off will require a community effort and we know that the single most important factor in the festival’s success is the support of volunteers. There are lots of ways to get involved – from planning, fundraising, and manpower on the day of the festival. The first volunteer meeting will be Monday, January 20th at 7:00 at Scout Properties, 3620 12th Street, NE . All ideas are welcome and committees are forming right now, so this is a great time to get involved! For now, the festival will include the following:

  • Kids Zone (games, activities, etc.)
  • Live entertainment (music/cultural acts/dance, etc.)
  • Vendors (food, arts/crafts, organizations and businesses)
  • Hometown parade
  • Brookland history and Cultural events

 Stay tuned for updates here and for more info on the BCHA and the Festival, check out the website and Facebook page.
