Free and Easy Events

By Fritz Hahn

Every week, the Going Out Gurus suggest ways to enjoy Washington's cultural scene without spending any money. Have an idea for us? Send it to

Ecuadorian Festival at Barcroft Park
The 17th annual festival features live music from singer Roberto Zumba and the band Sentimiento Andino, traditional dance performances, crafts and food.

"Rebel Without a Cause" on the Mall
The final movie to be shown at Screen on the Green this year is the 1955 James Dean classic, a favorite of restless teenagers everywhere.

Tabi Bonney at the Library
Known for his work with Raheem DeVaughn and Wale, this rising hip-hop star performs as part of the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities' Art Unplugged series.

Sensual Wednesdays at Eyebar
Congrats: The week is half over. Celebrate at Eyebar, where there's no cover, women drink free from 10 to 11, and copious drink specials include $2 shots and $3 Coronas. DJ Geometrix spins mash-ups and hip-hop on the main floor, while DJ Chris spins salsa and Latin hits upstairs.

Going Out Guide Happy Hour at Clarendon Ballroom
Join The Washington Post's Going Out Gurus (and a few hundred of their friends) at a party with a chill roof deck, free food and a chance to win a getaway to Rehoboth Beach, Del., or gift certificates to Georgetown Cupcake.

Uncle Q at Bourbon
Uncle Q spins a hip-hop history lesson every Friday night on the upstairs dance floor. You'll hear tunes from the old-school, Golden Age and Native Tongues eras to Jay-Z, Kanye and current standard-bearers.

"In Honor of the President: Mr. Lincoln's Music" at the Surratt House Museum
Listen to the music of the 1860s -- particularly, songs that were favorites of our 16th president and songs written for him -- in a tavern once owned by Mary Surratt, the woman hanged for being a conspirator in his assassination.
