The Humanities, Arts & Technology Festival at Gateway DC (HATFestDC)is on August 2-3 from 1:00pm-6:00pm. The festival is registering both volunteers and vendors for the weekend at

Attendees of HATFestDC will hear, see, create, learn, taste, dance, and interact. With a theme of “Humanities, Arts & Technology at Work,” HATFestDC will showcase the evolving creative economy in DC, while inspiring both adults and youth to build creative projects and programs with H.A.T. (humanities, arts, and technology) disciplines at the center.

The HATFestDC will feature a main performance area and five mini pavilions focused on music, visual arts and graphic design, food, technology and a children’s area. Concurrently, each area will include interactive workshops, readings, artist talks and panel discussions, robotics, art creation, theatrical performances and chef demonstrations. There will be over 50 vendor spaces, designed to provide area entrepreneurs a chance to authentically connect and establish relationships with potential consumers.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Deputy Mayor’s Office for Planning and Economic Development and presented by St. Elizabeths East, The Humanities Council of Washington, DC and THEARC.
