June 29, 2021

The downtown retail and dining destination offers activations for all the senses


Washington, DC (June 28, 2021) – As residents of the DC region look forward to a fun-filled summer, CityCenterDC is celebrating the season by transforming its pedestrian-friendly development into a vibrant destination for the community. Throughout the summer months, visitors to CityCenterDC will find Instagrammable art installations, DC’s favorite local flower truck, Lily’s Flower Truck, the return of its popular lunchtime Farmers Market, and, of course, an array of luxury shopping and dining options.


“It’s time to celebrate the return of summer in the city. We want to excite guests as they explore everything that CityCenterDC has to offer,” said Timothy R. Lowery, General Manager of CityCenterDC.


This summer’s much anticipated Palmer Alley installation, #CCDCSummerStream, brings a vivid experience to Palmer Alley. As patrons shop their favorite stores and pop into restaurants this season, they will be met by the relaxing sounds and vibrant ripples of color suspended above. Summer Stream is to be seen and heard as a full sensory experience. The installation, which was carefully created in collaboration with DC-based experiential art and events company Design Foundry , is 520 feet long, 10 feet wide, consists of 16 miles of ribbon, took more than 250 hours of labor to create.


For the first time in Washington, DC, and exclusively at CityCenterDC, #BubbleworksDC, an immersive world-class bubble spectacle will transform The Plaza at CityCenter. The 6-8 minute interactive shows will run every hour at the top of the hour from 1-7 pm Sunday through Thursday and 1-8pm Friday through 8pm during the month of July. The experience integrates the playfulness of bubbles with upbeat music. Already an international favorite, BubbleWorks has toured in Central Park and graced the concert stages of Coachella, Backstreet Boys, Taylor Swift, and many festivals worldwide.


The highly anticipated Farmers Market will be back in The Park at City Center Tuesdays, 11 am – 2 pm from July through November. The market offers visitors the opportunity to purchase fresh produce, baked goods, and the best indulgences from local small businesses. CityCenterDC is excited to bring back local favorites such as DMV Empanadas, Timber Pizza Company, Tea-Gu Kimchi and many more.


Throughout the summer, visitors can create their own fragrant floral bouquets at Lily’s Flower Truck. Lily’s rolls into the Plaza at CityCenter every Friday through Sunday from 12-5 pm. A portion of the proceeds from Lily’s Flower Truck go to local animal shelters.


CityCenterDC is dedicated to spreading joy this season and looks forward to having the community celebrate all summer long.
