Houston Brown III and Joseph D. Brown presents

Washington, DC NW - Shepherd Park

Block Party

Every Year the Last Saturday of July

3pm – 10pm

1100 block of Shepherd Road NW Washington, DC 20012 between Georgia Avenue and 12th Street.



Every year we strive to make this event bigger and better.


This year, we hope to gain support from other local supporters and businesses to donate both cash and in-kind. 


The majority of residents and individuals that attend this event are consumers of local business. 


This event is an annual event we host to establish new networks among the youth and young adults within the Washington, DC NW area Shepherd Park Community and to continue to build alliances with individuals who have been supporting from the start.  This Unity Day event brings the community together, free of charge and gives residents and friends a chance to enjoy and create relationships with peers and others to build a better tomorrow.



The event will have free food, activities for the young children, DJ, giveaways and other entertainment.  We have found that there is a high interest, desire for an event like this every year within the community  similar to the Shepherd Park Picnic held on Lowell Field but this caters more to the Youth and Young Adults.  It helps them to meet old and new friends and be able to keep in touch, maybe they haven’t seen a friend in a while due to school or work year round.  It encourages networking amongst young entrepreneurs in the community and establishing new relationships (personal and business) for a better tomorrow.  It is a fun, friendly and non-violent event every year.


We look forward to your support and generosity, an hopefully building a long term relationship with your organization. 


There should be a copy of the Block Party Permit accompanied with this letter.   Permit # PA10102098. 


Thank you for your time and support.





Success! Message received.
