Arts on Foot to go on Hiatus

A PQInsider snapshot from the 2011 festival
Arts on Foot will go on hiatus this September -  what would have been the 20th anniversary of the theater, art, museum and culinary festival.

According to the Washington Business Journal, it will come back in 2013 with a different format.

"We look forward to returning with a fall 2013 program that showcases Downtown as the premier location for visual and performing arts and culture in the Washington region," said Richard H. Bradley, executive director of the DowntownDC BID.  They'll be designing an event "that will no doubt about Downtown's rich cultural resources available throughout the year," Bradley continued in the release.

We've always enjoyed the festival - you can see our pics from last year here -  and while we appreciate the efforts to retool, we had hoped the sponsors would be able to get something off the ground for this fall.  Ah well, we're glad that the Navy Concerts are back to keep us company until then - they're back at the Navy Memorial tonight!
