What better way to celebrate Halloween than by attending one of DC’s most unique Halloween events? This event has brought together a fun, inclusive community since 1987 to celebrate the holiday. This race starts at 9PM in Dupont Circle and partying goes on late into the night at the surrounding bars and clubs for those of age!


3. October 30: The Exorcist Steps Commemoration

Halloween takes a turn to terror with this event. Meet the esteemed William Friedkin, the creator of The Exorcist, on the iconic Exorcist steps. Stop by from 4-6PM and bring something for him to sign!
