Chevy Chase DC Day 2014

     Join us for Chevy Chase DC Day, on Saturday, September 13, from 1 to 4 pm, shine or rain. (In the event of inclement weather, most activities will be held indoors at or near their corresponding activities.) Starting at 10 am, there will be discounts and sales at businesses along Connecticut Ave.

    The Chevy Chase Citizens Association and the Chevy Chase Community Center will be co-sponsoring treats and activities, including free ice cream and free music, at the Chevy Chase Commons outside the Community Center (5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW). We will be serving Moorenko's Ice Cream, which is being co-sponsored by the Avalon Theatre and Jon Laskin's State Farm Insurance. Musicians will include SmithJackson (2:30 to 4:00 pm).

    Also on the Commons, Kinderhaus will sponsor face painting; Child's Play will sponsor a moon bounce; the DC Library staff will provide an arts and crafts table and a story time; the Friends of the Chevy Chase DC Library will give away books; and Holly Worthington will sponsor cold water. In addition, local non-profit organizations will distribute information. The Community Center staff will also be providing information about the center's upcoming fall activities.

    Along Connecticut Avenue and neighboring streets, many businesses will engage in promotional activities, including discounts, sidewalk sales, and entertainment.
Anyone interested in information about participating should contact CCCA Pres. Samantha Nolan, at
    Again this year, we are sponsoring a scavenger hunt involving CCCA business members. Beginning at 1:00 pm, scavenger hunt forms will be available at the CCCA's membership table at the Chevy Chase Commons. To complete forms, participants need to visit various CCCA business members. All those returning completed forms will be eligible for a raffle for gift certificates provided by CCCA business members. The first 25 will receive a complimentary gift bag with giveaways from CCCA business members.

    The activities will go forward in shine or rain. If the weather is too inclement for activities to be outside, activities scheduled for the Chevy Chase Commons (including the free ice cream and free music), will be moved inside the Community Center, or inside the Library in the case of library-related activities. With regard to activities scheduled along Connecticut Avenue and neighboring streets, if the weather is too inclement for outdoor activities, individual businesses will determine which scheduled outdoor activities can appropriately be brought inside.
