Let’s Del Ray All Day! Here’s a list of all the events we have going on.

The best way to advocate for our neighbors and our businesses is to invite others to experience everything we love about Del Ray. Through a series of promotions and events we are able to engage our local neighbors with the Del Ray community.

 

FEATURED EVENT

Del Ray Holiday Tree & Menorah Lighting

The Del Ray community will come together on Sun., Dec 4 at 6 p.m. for the annual Christmas tree lighting, Menorah lighting, and holiday carols at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, located at the intersection of Mount Vernon and Oxford Avenues.  Participants are urged to bring toiletries for Carpenter’s Shelter.  Visit hand-painted holiday windows in storefronts and start your holiday shopping with a stroll down Mount Vernon Avenue, which will be illuminated by thousands of luminarias in honor of the late Nancy Dunning.
