DC disco band, The Moonlighters, will be playing Dupont Circle on Saturday, August 12 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. The public is invited to wear their dancing shoes and do the hustle to the sounds of the ‘70s for the afternoon. Dance instructors will be on site to give lessons or partner with those looking to do the bump or robot.
Yoga and Meditation will be provided by the Art of Living, sponsoring the World Culture Festival on the National Mall on September 29-October 1. The Art of Living has brought millions of people together for three previous World Culture Festivals. This year, it will be right here in DC, as we celebrate One World Family together.
Twenty vendors will ring Dupont Circle for an interactive day of music, dance, fine art, and makers. The day will include painters, jewelers, candle makers, plant growers, and macrame weavers.
Since 1990, The Moonlighters have been performing throughout the United States as one of the country’s best-loved and most authentic Motown and disco bands. Famous for getting the crowd out on the dance floor, The Moonlighters are experts at reading the room and making their performances highly entertaining.
This event was made possible by the Streets for People grant program under the DC Office of Planning. This program seeks to support economic recovery and celebrate DC’s diverse culture by attracting people to a vibrant area of activated blocks, sidewalks, streets, and parks.
