Please Note: Summer Arts Festival 2017 has been CANCELLED
We want to THANK YOU for your interest in the RIAMS Summer Arts Festival 2017. After careful consideration, we have made the very difficult decision to CANCEL this year’s event. Due to logistics beyond our control, we don’t feel confident that we could produce the caliber of event that artists, vendors, and attendees alike have come to expect from RIAMS by June 10.
Please stay tuned for updates on next year’s event!
And in the meantime, please plan to join us Saturday, September 30 from 10am-4pm for our annual
RIAMS Fall Fest!

Most of you have heard of the harrowing story of Lakira Renee Johnson “a 21-year old woman who was pregnant with twins. Around 10pm on August 30 as she emerged from a Northeast Washington, DC carryout store she was shot in the stomach. Police described her as a bystander who was not targeted by the gunman. Lakira went into labor unexpectedly at MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Saturday. Her twins were born alive and lived long enough to be named Heaven and Nevaeh – “Heaven” spelled backward. Lakira underwent additional surgery Monday to repair damage, caused by the bullet that struck her in the stomach, that could not be addressed until after the twin’s birth.”
Mayor Bowser has announced a search for suspects involved in what she called an “especially vicious crime”. So please donate if you can to help Lakira through the terrible incident and follow the other link to help solve the crime if you have any information.
