Events DC Plans for RFK

129

With the departure of its longtime tenant, DC United, Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, remains committed to activating RFK Stadium and revitalizing the surrounding 190-acre RFK Stadium-Armory Campus. It is Events DC’s goal to restore it to its original vibrancy with a diverse lineup of upcoming events and the simultaneous short and long-term redevelopment plans. Annual returning spring events include: The Shamrock Festival; The Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon Expo & Finish Festival; as well as The National Cannabis Festival.

Simultaneously, while continuing Campus programming, Events DC is also focused on the RFK redevelopment project and advancing its short-term program elements. Those elements will be designed and built out over the next two to five years. The short-term elements include: three multi-purpose recreation fields; available to the public and useable in the evening; a market hall, located next to Kingman Park that offers concessions, prepared food and groceries; a sports and recreation complex; three pedestrian bridges connecting the main site to Kingman and Heritage Islands; and a memorial to Robert F. Kennedy on the site of the existing Stadium. RFKCampus.com.
