Five Things: September 27, 2023

Join a silent disco at Art All Night


1. Art All Night, DC’s annual free, overnight, family-friendly arts festival, is this Friday-Saturday, September 29-30, from 7pm to 3am.  The event takes place in all eight wards, bringing visual and performing arts — painting, photography, sculpture, crafts, fashion, music, dance, theater, and more — to indoor and outdoor spaces around the city. Enjoy live music, dance at silent discos, take kids to story times and more activities for littles, sample food, view innovative art, and so much more.  This DCist article has details on what’s happening in many neighborhoods around DC.


2. This Saturday, September 30, you can literally kick it on the golf course at a FootGolf event to benefit SEEC, a nonprofit organization that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live, work, and thrive in the community.  Taking place 3-7pm at Sligo Creek Golf Course in Silver Spring, all are welcome to join, and tickets are $30 per person.  FootGolf is a combination of soccer and golf, but the rules and method of play mirror that of golf more than soccer. The object is to achieve the lowest score by kicking the ball the least amount of times to the hole. Read more about it in this KFDC post (but note this is a different FootGolf course that is also really fun).


3. In case you missed it yesterday, the annual round-up of Halloween events around the area was just posted, so start planning for a wicked fun season!


4. ‘Tis just about the season for these (get ’em while they’re in stock)!
