Jump-Start Summer


By Kay Twomey, Event Chair

Jump-start summer at Burleith's annual picnic on Saturday, June 16, from 3:30 to 7:30 pm. Rain or shine, the non-stop fun will take place at Whitehaven Park (aka the Green Lot) at Whitehaven and 37th Street.


ImagineBurleith coming together on one day for the best music, food, and people. Filled with sunshine, warmth, and effortless fun, the picnic is just what you need to ease into the hot season. Relax with family and friends. Get to know your neighbors offline and in person. Together, let’s welcome the excitement of summer, listen to new sounds, eat, drink, and celebrate Burleith’s 95th birthday! Liane Jones and I are excited to give you a peek at what’s to come.

New Music: Aura Duo's eclectic style and chill vibes create the perfect playlist.

Top Dog Contest: Burleith’s smartest and most beautiful canines vie for Best in Show in this perennial favorite event.

Kid Stuff: A petting zoo, face painting, fire truck, police cars, and GERMS ambulance provide endless fun. Don't miss the special raffle “curated” just for kids.

Eat + Drink: Feast on Rocklands (DC’s best BBQ!) and other tasty treats. Stay refreshed with the best drinks. Eat cake!
