One of the most anticipated shopping weekends to welcome spring will be on April 24 & 25, 2015, when Georgetown’s Book Hill neighborhood celebrates the 12th annual Georgetown French Market. Book Hill merchants, restaurants, salons and galleries will display their wares in an inviting open-air market, evoking the outdoor markets of Paris where guests wander between shops and galleries tempted by the aroma of fresh coffee and croissants while enjoying the sounds of strolling musicians. Details are forthcoming for this year's event and for now, view a short video below about the event!
WHAT & WHERE: Upper Wisconsin Avenue, between P Street and Reservoir Road – known as Book Hill - will transform into the Georgetown French Market featuring local boutiques, antique shops, restaurants and galleries offering savings up to 75% on designer goods, art and home furnishings. The Georgetown French Market also features family friendly entertainment, whimsical mimes and strolling musicians. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, please email email@example.com.
The Georgetown French Market offers shoppers up to 75% off at sidewalk sales at a variety of Book Hill shops and boutiques.
FOR ART & ANTIQUES LOVERS:
Book Hill art galleries and antiques stores will showcase and offer specials on a variety of fine arts, prints, books and home furnishings.
Some of the neighborhood’s best restaurants will set up curbside to nourish shoppers, grilling up French merguez sausages, filling sweet and savory crepes, offering Banh mi sandwiches and serving fresh French pastries. Expect deals on wine, too.
On Saturday, April 25th, the TD Bank parking lot at 1611 Wisconsin Avenue becomes a community gathering spot from 11 a.m.–4 p.m., and families are encouraged to bring the kids and enjoy live music, strolling mimes, face painting and more.
