St. Elizabeth's East

Description

The heart of the festival is located in the center of one of the District’s most prized historic campuses, St. Elizabeths East, in the 1100 block of Alabama Avenue SE. The East Campus will soon be the home of a new Gateway Pavilion currently under construction and slated to open in September 2013. The Pavilion will serve as a gateway to the St. Elizabeths East Innovation Hub and will usher in a new chapter of visitors to the campus, including local residents and the 3,700 U.S. Coast Guard employees set to start arriving on the nearby West Campus in August 2013. The Arts & Humanities Festival is the perfect platform to embrace the changes to the historic campus, while celebrating the District’s and Ward 8 community’s rich heritage, culture and creativity.
