A Gateway to the Arts

A snapshot over the past 8 years:

An annual destination for the DC metropolitan area, Hyattsville’s Route 1 Corridor is proud to be a home for a homegrown, authentic community for the County’s Gateway Arts District. The Festival, originally developed by EYA in concert with the community to promote the Hyattsville area and the Arts District Hyattsville townhomes and shoppes, now builds upon downtown’s restaurant cluster for a day of publicity, heightened awareness, and new customers. Since 2012, the Festival has been organized by the Hyattsville Community Development Corporation.

What past attendees and exhibitors had to say:

  • “The musicians were one of the best showcases in any event we have attended.”
  • “Well planned and promoted.”
  • “Keep having the Festival. It is by far the best of its kind that I have participated in and I’ve been doing festivals in the area for ten years. Hands down Hyattsville beats them all!”
  • “Throughout Hyattsville’s downtown transformation, it still retains its welcoming and neighborly front-porch feel.”
