NoMa is a vibrant, growing neighborhood nestled next to Capitol Hill, Shaw and Mt. Vernon Triangle, and the H Street NE corridor in Washington, D.C. NoMa is the hip, smart center of the nation’s capital, with free outdoor WiFi, terrific walkability, a slew of transit options, and a lengthy stretch of the Metropolitan Branch Trail. Click on each header below to learn more about that topic.
As the sun sets on 2021, we can’t help but think of our resilient NoMa community members and all of the wonderful things we were able to be part of this year:
😷 We started the year #MaskingUp with the help of very talented artists, @kellytowles, @redswanwalls, @trapxbob, and ...@shiyuart.
💻 We remained connected with virtual events like Nerds in NoMa and NoMaFIT.
🌸 We saw NoMa in Bloom in a bright and beautiful new way during the @cherryblossfest.
📅 We were able to gather together once again safely with events like CiNoMatic, D.C. Walls, PumpkinPalooza, and NoMa’s Winter Cheer Cart.
🍟 We said a “fond but not frosty” farewell to the infamous Dave Thomas Circle Wendy’s.
👋 We made new friends as new businesses like @laluxedental, @brooklynbouldersek, @f45training_noma, @unionkitchendc, @shelovesmedc, @brightstartearlycarepreschool, and @theduncandc opened their doors in NoMa.
🎄We partnered with @wundergartendc and @shermangardensdc on The Giving Tree Project, a fundraising effort that supports @h3projectdc.
… and more! We wish everyone a very happy and healthy #NewYear!

Washington, DC would not be what it is today without the contribution of inspiring, fearless women. We are so proud to share that Alethia Tanner Park was recently featured in “111 Places in Women's History in Washington, DC That You Must Not Miss” by Kaitlin Calogera and Rebecca Grawl. ...
The Park is the namesake of Alethia Tanner, a woman who was enslaved in Maryland but ultimately purchased her own freedom and the freedom of many of her relatives and friends. Ms. Tanner also had great impact on her community through her support of education, entrepreneurship, and churches for the Black community in the District. We are honored to be able to share her story, and we will continue to find ways to share Alethia’s legacy with parkgoers through new signage and an honorary event this spring.
✨🤗 The best way to spread winter cheer is: starting your morning with free treats and hot beverages!
Tomorrow from 7:30 - 9:30 AM, stop by the #NoMa BID Winter Cheer Cart on the corner of 1st and M Street NE for free cookies and coffee. We’ll even have #Puppacinos sponsored by ...@theduncandc for your furry friends! Swipe for a sneak peek. 👀 🐶
