The pleasant weather makes the fall a perfect time for an outdoor festival. The season brings a number of excuses to celebrate outside. In October, you can rehearse for Thanksgiving with a feast at Taste of DC over Columbus Day weekend. The food, wine, beer and music festival features tastings and dishes from more than 60 of DC’s best restaurants, eateries and food trucks, a Wine Walk, and the chance to get up close and personal with local chefs and winemakers.
Photogs clamor each fall for FotoWeek DC, a November festival highlighting the very best in fine art photography and compelling exhibits. For seasonal beer lovers, enjoy the full fall suite of suds from DC Brew Tours, which offers up locally crafted beer and wine pairings, plus transportation.
