Vote for “Soccer in the (Dupont) Circle” as the best DC event.

If you were here for the 2010 World Cup last summer, chances are that you stopped by Dupont Circle.  There, for the first time in DC history, were gathered thousands of soccer enthusiasts (or just American patriots) to watch the United States play England on jumbo screen positioned throughout the circle. (Read this Washington Post article on the event)

I loved it.  And so did everyone I talked to.  Now it’s time to show our thanks to the guys that made it possible (including the movement’s co-chair, GTJ staff member Michael Lipin).

Vote for Soccer in the Circle as the best event of DC in the Washington City Paper:

It only takes 10 seconds to vote, so please do so now!

Keep the soccer spirit alive!  Or, if you’re not a big soccer enthusiast (and here I include myself), thanks for keeping the spirit of great DC events and American pride alive!

    Thank you, Stephen! If Soccer in the Circle can be honored as DC’s Best Festival of 2010, it will be a wonderful show appreciation to the dedicated volunteers (also led by co-chair Aaron DeNu, and including other volunteers: Chris Andrews, Denis Baranov, Alex Bearman, Jimi Butler, Tracie Ching, Michael Feldstein, Joshua Hoffman, Chris Howdeshell, Kim Klyberg, Daniel Kramer, Chris Pavlakos, Paul Sotoudeh, Will Stephens and Paul Williams) who spent so much time and effort to plan and stage the event in just three months, which was barely any time at all! Also, being recognized as Best Festival will encourage the mission of the Dupont Festival team to create future events in Dupont Circle Park – an absolute treasure of a public space in our neighborhood, that we feel is still under-utilized!
