Brookland is finally ready to officially welcome Monroe Street Market to the neighborhood with a Grand Opening Extravaganza!

Kicking off Thursday, October 2nd, this (free!) event for residents and neighbors alike will not be one to miss. From 5 – 9 PM, attendees can enjoy live music from the Lloyd Dobler Effect as well as the renowned student music group from the Catholic University of America, Redline A Cappella.

Plus, attendees are sure to enjoy the delightfully tasty offerings available at the beer garden hosted by the newly opened Brookland Pint, located at Monroe Street Market (beer for purchase). Plus, the first 100 people to stop by will receive a signature Monroe Street Market glass & complimentary beer ticket!

Of course, no MSM event would be complete without an art-centric twist. Dance Place on the Arts Walk will host artist Jim Cassell during the event, and the evening will cap off with a lighting of the Arts Tower.

Friday and Saturday will both bring a whole new slew of events to enjoy as well. More live entertainment as well as art events are in store, and Saturday brings the Historic Brookland Farmers Market back around for their weekly offerings of fresh produce, crafts, cheese, meat, and more. Union Kitchen is the proud sponsor of Saturday’s live music to wrap up this amazing 3-day event at Monroe Street Market.

Wondering how to get to this bacchanal? Just take the Brookland-CUA Metro to Monroe Street Market, located at 716 Monroe Street NE, 20017. Rain or shine, there’s sure to be something for everyone, so come on down and don’t miss the fun!
