Do you or your organization have an event planned for 2018 that is focused on celebrating, honoring, enjoying or envisioning the future of the Anacostia River, the waterfront parks or the communities along the Anacostia corridor? 

If so, learn more about adding your event to the official Year of the Anacostia calendar.


Become a sponsor

Efforts to organize and produce the Year of the Anacostia are currently unfunded volunteer efforts. We are seeking both public and private sponsorship for the Year of the Anacostia in order to expand our outreach, increase available programming and enhance the waterfront.
