Marcatus Art Market

Art Whino is hosting a new Art market. I've just signed up for showing in May.
Marcātus, a creative art market near the Nationals Ballpark, will be a multidimensional event different than any other to reach the District. Marcātus invites you to come out for the whole day to enjoy the sounds of live music, smells of exotic foods, eye candy of art, to hunt for creative treasures, or simply to relax on the Great Lawn with a frosty beverage taking in the picturesque views of the Anacostia River.

Location: The Yards Park
10 Water St SE Washington, DC - DO NOT USE YOUR GPS
This park is so new it will take you to the wrong place if you use your GPS.
Please use the map below. Even Googlemaps and mapquest have it wrong.
(One block south of N and 3rd Streets, SE )
Three blocks from the Navy Yard Metro (New Jersey Ave Exit)

Event is free and open to the public

First Sunday of every month (Except July which will be Second Sunday).
April 3rd, May 1st, June 5th, July 10th, Aug 7th

ARTISTS TENTS - Water Street
