January 2, 2021   |  3:30-6:30pm

Join your neighbors for First Night Brightwood, a physically distant celebration, on Saturday, January 2, 2021, from 3:30 to 6:30 PM.

Before we hibernate for the winter, we want to kick off the New Year by masking up and encouraging our neighbors to connect with other neighbors in a fun and safe way that keeps physical distance. Some folks might want to bring their fire pits and lawn chairs to their front lawn and roast marshmallows. Other neighbors may choose to walk around their block with their own mug of hot chocolate in hand.

So, let's put on our winter coats and cutest masks so we can share good cheer at the start of 2021 from the safe physical distance of

--our front lawns,

--our porches,

--our stoops,

--our balconies, and

--our sidewalks 

All we ask for is your positive community spirit and willingness to keep yourself and others safe by following DC and DC COVID-19 protocols. And of course, please keep all conversation, music, and activities healthy and appropriate for all of our neighbors, from youngest to oldest. 

2020 has been a challenging year for many of us. As we reflect on all we've experienced, let's start 2021 by building community spirit from a phyical distance before the COVID vaccines start to break the back of this virus. 

Thank you to Erica Turnipseed (on behalf of Underwood and Van Buren neighbors) for planning the event!

DC’s Brightwood neighborhood has seen an increase in development over the past decade. Luckily, it has not changed the neighborhood landscape too much. The neighborhood’s diverse residents have put in the effort to keep it that way while still enjoying the fruits of progress.
