Once again, we are organizing a silent auction for our Spring Fling event in the Washington Hilton on Thursday, March 21st.  Last year, our event was very successful with 150 people, lots of auction items, a live band, and an abundance of delicious food!

In 2003, a broad coalition of Dupont Circle stakeholders gathered together under the leadership of the Dupont Circle Merchants and Professionals Association (DCMAP) to develop a Main Streets program for Dupont Circle. Today, Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets is a volunteer-driven, commercial revitalization organization that serves to educate businesses about government relations, business issues, and historic preservation; promote businesses through events, branding, and advertising; and improves the value of commercial building owners through economic enhancement.


The Main Streets model for commercial revitalization uses a comprehensive four point approach: 1) Economic Vitality, 2) Design, 3) Promotion and 4) Organization. This revitalization approach is active in over 1,800 communities nationwide.  It is a proven model reliant on a small staff and hundreds of community volunteers who simultaneously work on the four fronts to achieve success.  To learn more about HDCMS, visit
