DC Design Week 2018

Visit DC Design Week to register for our full lineup of events!


DC Design Week (October 20-28, 2018) is a city-wide celebration of makers, thinkers, and creatives that celebrates and elevates design in DC featuring “behind-the-scenes” tours of local creative spaces, major speaker events, workshops, conversational salons, networking, pop-up shops and so much more.

Design is For All.

Design is for thinkers and doers, listeners and seers, go-getters, and problem-solvers. It’s for walkers, bikers, drivers, and Metro riders. It’s for writers and readers, game players and web creators, food lovers, and museum-goers. It’s for makers and appreciators, and it’s always up for debaters.

Design: it’s a people thing. And in the DMV, we’re home to some of the smartest, coolest, realest, and greatest people around—not to mention one of the most exciting and innovative design cultures in the world.

That’s why, once again, we’re making a week of it all. And in 2018, we have more to celebrate than ever before—more partners, more experts, more formats, more venues, more incredible work. It’s DC Design Week: by our city’s humans, for people like you.
