Savor the Summer Season
CityCenterDC is the spot to soak up every second of this joyful time of year.
Turns out, summer at CityCenterDC is equally optimistic. Everything you need to bask in the sunny season is here: experiential events for big and small (like free pop-meets-classical concerts and daily bubble clouds in the Plaza); equally bubbly style picks that’ll feel cool and right on trend, and a wealth of epicurean delights for every appetite (hand-crafted gelato or a bright salad—take your pick!) At CityCenterDC, we do summer right. Read on for your guide to things to do this summer exclusively at CityCenterDC.
Our annual BubbleworksDC experience in the Plaza is officially on, now until July 31st, with a bevy of bubble machines blowing daily at the top of the hour every hour from 1-7pm. And The Plaza isn’t the only place with bubbles.

COLORS OF SUMMER
With a fresh season comes a new, eye-catching installation in Palmer Alley, and this season, we’re leaning into the kaleidoscopic hues of summer. Flying high over the boutiques are hundreds of technicolor umbrellas, offering a must-see spectacle (and some much-needed shade!) for guests to enjoy. Another plus?
