History

The Dupont Circle Business Improvement District was created in early 2018 at a time when the neighborhood is on the cusp of a transformation. The District of Columbia is coming into its own as a walkable, enjoyable city full of distinct neighborhoods, and Dupont Circle remains the legendary place that embodies this capital city.

Dupont Circle is a place where feminists first fought, gay residents felt welcomed, capitalist entrepreneurs embraced innovation, and the cutting-edge, progressive thinkers of the city gathered. Right now, the BID is focusing on the future while celebrating the past of this iconic place.
