One of Petworth’s best-known claims to fame is President Lincoln’s Cottage, but while the rest of the neighborhood might not be familiar to visitors yet, residents recognize its unique flair and offerings. From neighborhood gatherings to unique pop-up restaurants and independent shops, Petworth has something special for all visitors. Dig deeper and discover both one-time and all-the-time activities to enjoy in this neighborhood throughout the year. Petworth is known for its community events. Held in early summer, Celebrate Petworth is an annual event anchored around art, music, food, healthy living and family.
