The moonbounce. The beer garden. BBQ on a stick. Or maybe it's the rain. Do you have a favorite memory of Columbia Heights Day? Are you ready for more outdoor movie nights in the Heights? Do you want to have a blast at Fall Fest? Do you sip cocoa and sing-along as we light the tree in the plaza? 

These special events bring our diverse community together. Will you help to keep them coming? 

If you can get behind celebrating the community of Columbia Heights, please:

A ) DONATE $25, $50, $100 to support our mission and keep these events accessible to all

B ) SHARE this fundraiser on your social media

Our Story: 

Over a decade ago, Columbia Heights Day was created to bring unity to the diverse neighborhood of Columbia Heights in celebration of the local history and traditions. Our mission now, as the Columbia Heights Initiative, is to further enrich the quality of life in our community by creating year-round opportunities for residents, business, and organizations to connect in a deep and meaningful way.

This year we've become so much more than a one day festival. We've taken action to build a sustainable organizational infrastructure including tripling our active volunteer corps and building a business and nonprofit network to foster partnerships and help businesses thrive. We've organized community clean-ups, hosted happy hours at our local bars, and most important to our community, we've developed 16 signature events like:

  • Columbia Heights Day (of course!)
  • Movie Nights in the Heights 
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Trick or Treat on 11th Street
  • Fall Fest 
  • Christmas Tree Extravaganza

With all these new and returning events, the Columbia Heights Initiative is sure to offer something for everyone. We take pride in making these experiences accessible to all who live, work, or play in our neighborhood. Thank you for your donation, for sharing this fundraiser on your social media, and for coming to our next event!
