The best Fall events in NoMa DC
Anyone who has lived in NoMa DC for any time knows that when the Fall season starts, the fun isn’t too far behind! For the residents who are new to the neighborhood, this is a great time to get outside of your apartment, meet some new people, and see for yourself how NoMa takes the spooky season to incredible heights!
Even though our usual definition of fun will look a little different this year, NoMa Bid and Wundergarten did a fantastic job of incorporating protocols to allow residents of the neighborhood to feel safe without compromising each event’s exciting nature this season.
We are thrilled to be in a neighborhood that goes above and beyond to bring smiles to the people who live, work, go to school, and people who are just visiting NoMa!
And as a 2M resident in particular, who have super convenient access to all of the action this season. Wundergarten is just two blocks away for the community! No need to worry about finding a parking spot or driving home after a long day of festivities. All you need to worry about is having a great time, and creating new experiences right where you live.
So what are the events NoMa has to store for residents? We are happy that you asked!
Below are a few of the events we are most excited about for this Fall season.
13 Nights of Halloween
Wunder Garten will host Thirteen Nights of Halloween from October 19th through October 31st, featuring a range of activities and treats from Halloween themed drink specials, trivia nights, LGBTQ Night, Halloween movie nights, and socially-distanced monster bashes.
