WASHINGTON, D.C., DECEMBER 5, 2019 — The Dupont Circle Business Improvement District (BID) has partnered with Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets (HDCMS), the Heurich House Museum, and Dupont Festival for a series of holiday happenings around the Dupont Circle neighborhood on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 12 – 9 p.m.

Shoppers are encouraged to pick up a Pop-Up Passport at the tent in front of the Dupont Circle Metro (Q Street – North Station). When shoppers get their passport stamped at 6 pop-ups, they’ll earn free admission on Saturday into the Heurich House Museum’s German-style Christkindlmarkt! Visitors can also tour the historic home of the Heurich family that will be decorated for Christmas.

The Circulator’s Annual Winter Wonder Bus will be parked at the Dupont Underground entrance in front of the Starbuck patio (on the west-side of 19th street). Shoppers can take a quick break inside the bus to receive free professional holiday family pictures! Guests who take pictures will be given the link to a website where they can download their images a few days later.

After a day of shopping, guests can warm up and enjoy Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (and more animated holiday classics!) with friends and family. Hot tea will be provided by Valley Brook Tea, new to P Street this winter. Dupont favorite, Emissary, will provide hot cider and coffee. Plus, Kramerbooks & Afterwords will have a table for their Holiday Book Drive, where shoppers can purchase one of a selection of books to be donated to An Open Book Foundation.
