80 years ago, the Atlas made its grand debut on H Street offering a dynamic new destination for art and entertainment in the nation’s capital. 50 years ago, following the 1968 riots, the Atlas still stood as a monument of hope in a vibrant community, beckoning a renaissance destined in our future. Today, the Atlas celebrates its rich and honorable past as it embraces the promising years ahead – a landmark destination for performing arts and cultural connection.
Join us for this unique and remarkable celebration and support the Atlas Performing Arts Center! Entertainment includes DC’s own The JoGo Project, and cellist virtuoso, Benjamin Gates. The party won’t stop until late night DJs from A-Squad Entertainment say so. That’s how we’re partying with a purpose on this historic anniversary.
