The safest course for our attendees, artists, dancers, guest, and community is that WE REQUIRE FACE COVERINGS and practice #SOCIALDISDANCING at #CapHouseFest - The Official Summer Opener!

REVIEWS...."EXCELLENT EVENT. The positive energy was electric, infectious and contagious. What happened in the park on Monday definitely catapults DC into the tier of premier Labor Day House Music events in the country. The dance space was wide, open and shady. The rain that fell heightened the spiritual aura of what House is about... We were all the blessed Monday in Malcolm X Park. I know I was."
