Broccoli City Festival Canceled Again Over COVID Concerns

D.C.’s popular Broccoli City Festival has been canceled out of coronavirus fears for the second straight year.

The music festival’s organizers announced the cancellation on social media Wednesday, WTOP reported.

“At the heart of Broccoli City is the belief that our people deserve the best of everything—including safe spaces to gather in celebration of our culture,” they tweeted. “In that spirit, we have decided to cancel the Broccoli City Festival 2021 this Oct. to reduce the likelihood of exposure to COVID-19 and do our part to slow the spread in the communities of color we serve.”

The event, held annually in D.C. since 2013, had been scheduled this year for Oct. 2 at RFK Stadium and featured artists such as Lil Baby, Snoh Aalegra and Moneybagg Yo.

Tickets for this year’s festival will be automatically refunded within 14 business days.
