Shaw Open House, one of Shaw Main Streets’ most popular neighborhood events, returns Saturday, June 22, 2024, from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

As part of Shaw Main Streets’ ongoing #LoveShaw campaign, Shaw Open House gives visitors every reason to #ShopinShaw and #DineInShaw through sampling, promotional activities and free gifts.  A free ‘passport’ ushers visitors from merchant to merchant for a #Shawesome afternoon of exploration and entertainment, culminating with a prize-filled closeout party. At every business visited, attendees will have their passport validated, allowing the bearer to enter the prize drawings.

Use these just like cash, with no other purchase required, at one business or four different businesses. All 'Shawbucks' expire at 11:59 PM, so use them to enjoy food, beverages, merchandise, or services during the day of the event and that evening. 

Passports and Shawbucks will be distributed at Urban Grape, 1301 9th Street, NW, starting at 1 PM on 06/22/24, while supplies last.
