Broccoli Fest Comes to Congress Heights

Art of War Concept: Thus the energy developed by good fighting men is as the momentum of a round stone rolled down a mountain thousands of feet in height. So much on the subject of energy. 
Did you by chance hear the loud concert music in the neighborhood this weekend? If so, it came from the Broccoli Fest. On Saturday, concert goers from the DMV verged onto the East Campus of St. Elizabeths for a full day live hip-hop concert. Yup, local artist from Just Blaze to Cam’Ron energized the crowd.  It actually felt a little bit like a Howard Homecoming event.

The Broccoli Fest is more than just music…it’s a cause that promotes health eating, environmental sustainability and the importance of building strong communities – sounds like a great fit for Ward 8. It was a positive event and took advantage of a great facility using the Pavilion. My hope is that one day we can move the Capital Jazz Fest to the St E’s campus or the Anacostia waterfront (hint, hint).

If you missed it hear are some photos below…

Had to been a couple thousand people in attendance

Great time in Congress Heights

All kinds of vendors

More Vendors

More and more people

Need a bracelet or necklace?

If you paid a little extra you got to watch the concert from the top

Nice umbrellas

Good seats up top


Folks having a good time

There is the West Campus across the street

Party Over Here!

And a Party over There!

Don't come between a man and his broccoli!
