    D.C.’s annual overnight art festival is set to take over six neighborhoods this Saturday. 

    Art All Night will run from 7 p.m. Saturday through 3 a.m. Sunday.

    Businesses will participate in Congress Heights, Dupont Circle, H Street, North Capitol Street, Shaw Main Streets and Tenleytown.

    The festival will provide plenty of attractions for a fun-filled evening, including painting, photography, fashion, music, film, poetry and dance displays.

    Each street will have a different theme and corresponding activities: Congress Heights will highlight the history of gospel, blues and jazz, and Shaw will have body painting and DIY crafts. 

    Those looking for live music should venture to Tenleytown to see and hear the Afro-Brazilian Drum Corps Batala march down Wisconsin Avenue, with a concert afterward. 

    Each area will showcase art and food for purchase, though the event itself is free to attend. 

    The festival is presented by the D.C. Department of Small and Local Business Development.

    Passes provide access to the events and a free giveaway, and are available on Art All Night’s website.
