Event Information

By The People, the free arts and dialogue festival Halcyon launched in 2018, returns June 15-23, with massive art installations, pop-up performances, curated dialogues, augmented reality artwork, and more. Check out highlights from last year's festival here.

As with last year, the festival will take place at hub locations across the city, and your free registration gets you access to all those locations on all dates. We're constantly updating our website and Instagram with additions to programming, but here are a few of the events and locations you won't want to miss:

- Festival hubs at the Smithsonian Arts + Industries Building, Union Market, and CityCenterDC.
- A fourth floating hub based on the Anacostia River and visiting Georgetown, Capitol Riverfront, and Anacostia on different dates.
- An art fair for collectors (and aspiring collectors!) featuring all local artists.
- Smithsonian museums (including our hub at the Smithsonian Arts + Industries Building) open until midnight on Saturday, June 22 in celebration of the Solstice.

By the People strives to make the festival experience accessible to all attendees. For additional information or if you have questions, need assistance, or an accommodation, please contact us at OR 202-796-4240.
