There’s still time for a summer block party before school starts, and Whitman Walker is again stepping up for the occasion! The East of the River Fall Fest is the community health place’s annual back-to-school drive and community block party.

This year, get together with neighbors near the Big Chair for the festival, which takes place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday August 10 at Max Robinson Center (2301 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE) in Anacostia.

This free event brings together multiple organizations, partners and community members for an afternoon of live performances, GO-GO music, school supplies, HIV testing and fun! 

Get ready for the school year while enjoying an afternoon of music and entertainment from local artists, along with free food provided by Caribbean Citations. Free HIV testing will be available through the Whitman Walker mobile testing van.
