The Reagan Building Is Springing Into Spring

From our friends at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center...

Trade Center Management Associates is Springing into Spring with a Line-up of Outdoor Community Events at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center

Trade Center Management Associates, the company that manages the daily activities of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center (RRB/ITC) is kicking off spring with outdoor events all month long. Celebrate the warmer weather on the Wilson Plaza with Workout Wednesdays, shop at the Capital Harvest on the Plaza farmer’s market, and do more outdoors at the Reagan Building this May.

Spring activities on the Wilson Plaza include:

 Plaza Bar - The Reagan Building’s Plaza Bar is officially open for the season. Weather permitting, it will serve up pre-made salads, sandwiches and hot items off the charcoal grill Thursdays and Fridays from 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM, starting May 12th.

• Capital Harvest on the Plaza (CHoP) - CHoP, the Wilson Plaza’s farmer’s market, returns on May 13th. It’ll be open every Friday from May 13th - November 11th, except for July 1st. Swing by for farm-fresh edibles, prepared foods and artisanal novelties.

• Washington Humane Society’s Adopt Force One - The Washington Humane Society’s mobile adoption van will be visiting Wilson Plaza every second and fourth Friday, starting on May 13th. Stop by to meet adoptable cats and dogs looking for a new home.

• Workout Wednesdays - Every Wednesday from May 18th - June 15th, come to the Wilson Plaza at 5:30 PM to enjoy free workout sessions, led by Melissa Rivers of Balance Gym. Don’t forget your mat!

• Feeding the 5000 - On May 18th, Feedback and their partners will provide a free feast for thousands, made entirely from fresh, top-quality produce that would have otherwise been wasted. Stop by from 11 AM to 4 PM.

 Roland Garros (2016 French Open) Kick-Off & Viewing - On May 23rd, kick-off Roland Garros with the French Ambassador. The Plaza Bar will be offering French-themed foods and a live feed from The Tennis Channel of the 2016 French Open will be playing on the Wilson Plaza all week.

“These May events are just a sampling of the events we host throughout the year to bring the DC community together,” said John P. Drew, President and CEO of TCMA. “Part of our mission is convening stakeholders from around the region, whether that be for our trade, business, or community events.”

Events on the Wilson Plaza will be happening throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons. May 13th is the first time that all events happening on the Wilson Plaza on Fridays will coincide - the Plaza Bar will be open, CHoP will be there, and the Washington Humane Society will be presenting adoptable pets. Don’t miss this opportunity to kickoff spring with the Reagan Building.
