Mother Nature and the calendar aren’t quite aligned right now in terms of spring temperatures, but that shouldn’t stop you from planning your spring activities! Take a look at our guide to events around the city this spring.

Catch a Game

Baseball, basketball, or hockey—whatever you choose, get out for a game! Opening Day at the Washington ballpark is on April 7 and you can check out the full schedule here. Want to get to know one of the home team’s players a little more? Check out when we went on the road with pitcher Drew Storen last season.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival continues until April 17. Visit the Tidal Basin to see the blossoming of thousands of cherry trees. Upcoming events still include the parade, concerts, and the Southwest Waterfront festival fireworks. A long-standing Washington tradition!

Eat and Drink


With spring comes the opportunity to imbibe outdoors! Whether you’re into picnics in Meridian Park or brunches on the patios along 14th Street—there’s something for everyone. More into the festival scene? Check out the DC Craft Beer Festival on April 16.
