H Street Block Party and BBQ Cookoff!

The Table Church and our neighbors on 11th Street invite you to a Block Party for the whole community.

Music. Photobooth. Bingo. Job Preparation Assistance. Dance-off. Kids Activities. BBQ Cookoff. Bakeoff. And much, much more!

Also, calling all chefs!

We’re looking for a few good cooks to serve up their finest culinary creations, and all registered contestants will be eligible for over $700 in prizes for best BBQ, sides, and sweets from your favorite H Street restaurants and vendors. If you want to be entered as a contestant in the BBQ Cookoff or Bakeoff and a chance to win great prices, register here.


Complete the linked form including your name, contact info, and which category you’re competing in.  Plan for a dish that can be divided into at least 10 servings.  On the day of the event, bring your prepared entry ½ hour before kickoff (12:30) so we can help everyone get set up.  Once your dish has been evaluated by the judges, help serve your entry to guests of the block party.  Once judges reach consensus, 1st and 2nd place awards will be given for best BBQ, best sides, and best sweets.
